Tonite I was seriously beginning to wonder just HOW many times I would have to redo this this block .. even with being extra careful I still managed to screw it up .. **sigh oh how many times you ask? well this one block was 4 – another block was 5, and yet another block was 4 – for some reason that set of 3 blocks I couldn’t get right the first time to save my life .. and to add insult to injury? It was the same stupid mistake (!!) AAAAARGGGGGGG
My plan was to have 3 different fabrics for the corner and middle squares in each block .. the corners would be the same while the middle would be different .. not only did I manage to totally flip the units around, I didn’t even follow my layout plan .. ah well – I took a break after those 3 gave me so much grief and managed to do the rest of them without any other issues .. just those 3 blocks .. pathetic .. just bloody pathetic!
BUT I did persevere and got them done .. I noticed that I had the odd square in the wrong spot on a few of these and by this point, I was like .. I just do NOT care! I was beyond thrilled to have them together at this point .. I decided (just for fun) to not pay attention to which way the stars were going in the borders .. I think that it just adds to the fun and motion of the quilt ..
And here is the element that I hinted at last nite but didn’t post any pictures or go into any great detail with it .. So at this point, the border elements are done .. now I have to measure my quilt, get the average cut my pieces and the fun really begins .. altho after those stupid stars, I’m thinking a root canal would be heaven!
In other quilt related goodies .. I have been working on a pattern that I designed a few years ago with leaders n enders .. well I had a sneaky idea that I had cut out 2 of these tops and tonite I finally took the time to figure that yup I did .. well rather than create 2 of the same, I’ve done another design – so there will be 2 quilts with identical fabrics, but totally different designs .. I’m not even sure that you could recognize that they are from the same block unless you looked really close .. I do like them, and am looking forward to getting them done . .all the units are together for the one, and I’m ¼ way thru the other units .. THEN I’ll piece them together 🙂
