Picture this: I’m back from my little mini vacation. I am tired, have a ton of laundry to do, and it suddenly dawns on me: Saturday is the first Saturday of the month and I don’t have my blocks ready for Sampler Class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. No problem, I think. I’ll just make the big block while I’m waiting for the first load of wash to dry. I put the laundry in the dryer, enter my sewing room, turn the TV on so I can watch my favorite soap while I sew, and had that block done in no time. I then hurried up stairs so I could take pictures in natural light. First I took this one above.
Then I tried a different background. I was so pleased with this block. It looked like all my points were where they should be.
Then I tried another background. Satisfied, I picked up my background pieces, and as I admired the block one more time, I thought, what the……? Obviously I had done something wrong. Apparently several mini blocks were placed wrong.
Back in my sewing room, I unstitched and re-stitched and came up with this block, which is how it should look. You can see here where I posted a picture of the sample blocks that are to be done and ready to show at this month’s Sampler meetings. I love piecing. I love piecing. I love….oh, honestly, who do I think I’m kidding.
PS: I can't believe me. I'm just looking over this post and realized that all I had to do was take that one row out and turn it around. I took each individual piece apart and re-sewed it! I think I have a problem.
- Mark your calendar now for the next Stitch-In which will be held September 20th and 21st.
