One of these things is not like the other!!
Remember that song from Sesame Street? Well, take a good close look at these blocks and you'll see that while they look similar, they are definitely not like each other..at least not in the way it counts! See the little short piece on the side of the square..now look at the long piece. The one with the red centre is right, the grey centre wrong. Guess how many I made before noticing the difference (ahem, error). Yep, ALL 36 blocks! lol! I made one right then somehow got all turned around. All afternoon and into the evening, cutting, sewing, pressing, BAM! Knocked the snot right outta me and I could have sat on the floor and cried in frustration! I looked at them little suckers and said "No Way! I am not ripping out 36 blocks!" The time NOT to screw up and get it wrong is when you are on a deadline for a class project. I was so disgusted I just tossed them onto the cutting table and walked away. Went back the next day and discovered that the piecing, though incorrect, wasn't going to make a difference visually in the quilt so I finished the rest of the piecing and here's the centre of my Schnibble's McGuffey! I used Martinque and it's just so sweet.
Hope to get the borders on today :)
I know I've been absent alot lately. We've been having some health issues with Mr. RQ the past few weeks and so my mind has been on that. I debated about whether to blog about it or not, not sure if my followers want to read something outside of my quilting life. Happy stitching to all!
