I went to do the March blocks of the Sisters Ten BOM last night (you can catch up on January and February too, if you want!). Chaos ensued.
Seriously, it was a comedy of errors.
I cut out all my pieces. So far, so good.
Oh wait, I realized I had cut some of them for 9" blocks instead of 12" blocks. Dangit. Recut.
On to chain piecing HSTs. Nothing new here, I've done this a gazillion times.
But this time my 1/4" foot decided to eat some of my corners. The top layer of fabric was catching on part of the foot. Annoying, but I'll trim these guys up anyway, so no big deal.
Oh crap. I pieced all of the HSTs together WRONG sides together. Rookie mistake - this one actually pissed me off. I must really be on auto pilot!
Commence the ripping and re-piecing.
Oh wait, then I noticed I somehow pieced the selvedge of one print into a block. I have NO idea how I missed this one.
Laying out the block before final piecing - yeah, these colors are not quite right. Re-cutting AGAIN.
Much better. Now lets see if I can put these kids together without incident.
Apparently not. See that upper left corner? More ripping.
Sigh of relief. They're both done, and somehow I didn't tear my hair out or throw anything. Somehow.
Next time I promise I'll pay better attention. Maybe.
