I was quite fed up with it and put everything away for the night, but it nagged at me. It nagged a lot. I knew I couldn't use this square as it stood and that it would need to be redone. So after a night's sleep, (I'd like to say it was good, but that would be a lie) and waking up to a caffeine withdrawal headache, I took some ibuprofen and got back to work on this block.
It was easy as pie, almost as calming as knitting. I made two mistakes and I can live with both of them. The first mistake was I used the same fabric as the first block. Oops. I can live with that as I simply won't put the two blocks next to each other (Or maybe I will) The second mistake was the last step.
The blocks are to be trimmed at 12 1/2" and I trimmed them to 12". Again, I can live with that.
Here's is my second attempt at the wobbly pattern. It isn't very wobbly and again, I am quite good with that. The off balance wobbly just makes my eyes cross.
I'm looking forward to having a new quilt at the end of the year. It's been decades since I made my last one. My sister-in-law Jan sews beautiful quilts. She has the talent to be extremely precise in her seams and has a good eye for fabric pattern choices. There are times I wish I could sew like she does, but that would take more effort than I'm willing to give. I just don't have the eye for detail as she does.
That doesn't stop me from trying though. I can't wait to see what the new blocks for February will be.
It's not to late for you to join the class too. Leave me a note in the comment section below and I'd love to see what your blocks look like.
One other thing, there seems to be a problem with being able to download the patterns at the website. I have a PDF copy. Just drop me an email if you would like a copy.
Happy sewing, knitting, embroidering, or whatever it is that is keeping your mind at peace and your hands busy.
