Oops-lah

I knew it was getting late as the sun was setting, but I just needed to sew a couple more seams and then my two Civil War blocks would be finished.  I pressed the block, took the paper out, pressed it again, then went to get my camera to take a picture.  Took one picture and then  thought hmm, this block looks wrong, took me a moment to realise why …

I can see that there will be a bit of seam ripping tomorrow before I start on anything else, but I did manage to get one block right.

  2. Lol! I know that rush to finish feeling! Almost certainly why you have a mistake there I think.

  4. OMG that is sad and as someone said "the points matched so beautifully", you must have been very anxious to finish and get to bed. The New England Block looks perfect, very nice. I love the fabric in Missouri Star.

  6. Oh I am so far behind with those blocks...but am determined to catch up "one day"....I am really concentrating on finishing up some really old UFOs at the moment. It will be very satisfying to get them done ....the CW blocks can wait for a while longer!

  8. Sometimes I think my camera is one of my best quilting tools. Those blocks that are turned wrong just seem to jump out when I take a photo. Now it might be fun to draw that first block into EQ just like you've sewn it. It might make a neat secondary design.

  10. Aaw poor you, having to unstitch that block. All your blocks are looking great and I'm sure you will have fun with all those colourful fabrics.
