This afternoon, around 2 p.m., I think I literally "High Fived" myself!!!
For those of you out of the loop, I'm blogging about Bonnie Hunter's latest Mystery Quilt, called "Easy Street".
I finally finished piecing 4 small (corner) triangles, 16(?) outer edge triangles, 9 (star) blocks and 16 blocks. From a distance, the 16 blocks look like there's a circle in the middle, but its not a circle.
See what I mean about that "circle" block?
And, when I'm piecing lots of pieces, I sometimes cut or make more than is actually required.
Hence, what I call my "Orphan Blocks". I will definitely be designing something for the back of my quilt with these Orphan Blocks.
PLUS, I screwed up royally on those green triangles!
Can you say Rosa's got HUGE memory problems and throw in loss of vision, as well?!??
Step 7 required that I use a LOT of limey green triangles, that I was SUPPOSED to have cut up in Step 3 or 4, right? Well, I looked at my design wall and did one of my LONG theatrical sighs 'cause I had completely skipped that step! Or so I thought.
Sooooo, I cut up the required limey green triangles and sewed up the 16 BIG triangles and did one of those Toyota jumps 'cause I had finished Step 7.
Yesterday, guess who decides to SHOW UP, on my design wall?!?!?
Those (previously cut up) limey green triangles from Step 3 or 4 that I "thought" I had skipped and did NOT see them.... AT ALL... on my design wall!!!
NOTE TO SELF:
Wake up and smell the coffee.
And try and stay alert!
Hope you have a Wonderful Week!
Tomorrow, I start sewing these blocks and tris!!!
