Or, alternately, "how I managed to screw up one of the easiest blocks in the history of the world."
I tell ya, my blog earns its name.
I've been making progress on my scrappy trip, and the other day I had a big ol' stack of blocks that were at the point where they were in the little pieced strips, but still needed to be seam ripped into the different strips for the block. Go here if you are royally confused. I'll wait.
See the pile of plates on the top left? Those are the ones to which I refer...
Ok, so these blocks and I were sitting on the couch, watching netflix and seam ripping (Prison Break, I think?) and apparently, I can't multitask that well.
Because this happened:
Yep. Somethings not right... At least I figured it out before I put the whole block together. But I had to seam rip the two rows I put together, and then re-piece the strips that were wrong, and then seam rip them at the right places, and then sew the rows back together to make the block.
I'm a winner.
BUT! I have a pretty stack of blocks that are all done and ready to be pressed and trimmed. So yeah, I win.
They're very fluffy. I have the urge to squish them.
