looks simple, huh?
Then why did I keep making
not 1 mistake.... fabric doesn't cover seam allowance on that far left corner
not two mistakes... um.. the colors are not supposed to match..they are supposed to be opposite each other.
Not three mistakes... oh the points don't match cause there is a pucker in the white fabric
Not four mistakes... yea, once again the fabric isn't long enough to go into the seam allowance
But FIVE mistakes... um,, I seem to have a problem with my fabric being too small!!
And then when I finally gave up...it kind of worked... Notice the two light fabrics are not the same. This is one half of the first block and the one half of the second block. Yea, I made all those mistakes on just two different blocks. And yes, I now see that the points once again do not match..
And this is what is on my design wall.
I am not fixing it again. I am done. really. in the whole scheme of things it is only one block and no one else will notice it. and you can keep a secret? right?
Do I dare start a new block? I'm kind of scared...
This block is part of the Civil War Love Letters (by Rosemary Young) quilt that I am paper piecing with a group at a LQS.
