Well, you know you will get a story when you talk to me! I set about to create some green blocks for the BOM Basics stuff. I thought, hmmmm, my block was the Jar so I will make one of those. In all the many many many years I have been sewing and quilting, I have never made such a horribly bad block.
Yes, it was so bad that I actually tossed it! I have resisted digging it out of the trash but since the trash goes out tonight if I can just stay away for a little longer..........
Anyway. Nothing was working. Nothing. It was too small, it was poor workmanship, it wouldn't lie flat. It was truly a mess. So it is staying in the trash ...... for now.
And I made another really nice jar block.
So I thought I would make a few more. Something different now. Hey, I like that churn dash thing where you make TWO at ONCE! Right up my alley. Yeah, buddy. Up my alley.
So I dug into the made fabric bin and dragged out an approximately 14 inch square of fabric and set out to add a really vintage piece of green I got from my Aunt's stash when she died. Well, wouldn't you know the stupid blocks weren't large enough. Aughh.
I had to add to the edges of both blocks. Now how can that really be happening to me? I think they are cute, and interesting, and they do have that vintage fabric and all.......so I am going to send them. I made them bigger. I figured "made blocks" with "made fabric" would work.
See my cute shoes? These are the best shoes, they make my feet look sexy! Like someone else's feet and not mine!
