I was in my element with this one! I love using the girly fabrics in my stash. The only problem was that I was not having a good sewing day. I read the tutorial which stated you need a 6.5" x 24" ruler or template. I have two 24" rulers but didn't actually realise they were only 6" wide NOT 6.5". You can see where this is going.... I cut my first half-block with my ruler and that's when I measured and was swearing at myself for stuffing up the block. Here's my orphan half block, I'll have to find another use for it!
|The wrong size!|
Things seemed to go downhill from there. Instead of cutting exactly the same fabrics to remake that block I cut the fabrics I had allocated for the second half of the block (I now had two sets of the same fabric strips). That worked out OK, just not as I had originally designed it.
When I made block 2 I cut the second half block upside down! This meant that a couple of the fabrics I had planned to mismatch now matched up. Not a biggy but still not what I had originally planned.
So they are still useable blocks and I do really like them. They are just not as awesome as I had hoped they would be! Do you find that you have good days and bad days when sewing?
