Not Again!

Once again I did not yet post last weekend’s progress! I am apparently an incredible slacker lately.

Last Saturday during the football game, I made some progress, but also a major mistake that I’ll have to fix during tomorrow’s game. Sigh.

This is the unit that is wrong. I used the wrong center fabric. (I wondered why I had to cut those 2 1/2 inch squares when I had been so careful with my cutting.)

That, of course, makes these units wrong. I will fix them during the game also.

And this is the total of what I completed last Saturday. Not so very much. It was a great game and I kept forgetting to stitch.

I also had some extra hand stitching time on Sunday evening when I played chauffeur for my husband, but I have no pictures of those units. The good news is that it leaves me set up to complete this block tomorrow even with the re-doing of the first units. So watch for pictures of the completed block this weekend.

In case you were wondering how many pieces are in this block, here’s the cutting chart. (I’ll let you do the addition!)

In nephew’s wedding quilt news (although maybe I should quit calling it that, since his bride is the one who is most excited about it), I am plugging along on the last four blocks. I need to cut and make some more flying geese, and then assemble the outer parts of those blocks. Then I will get to the part where I add lots of negative space to make the quilt 90″ square. I’m looking forward to that part! I hope to get the top completed this weekend and get it off to the quilter by Tuesday.

What are you up to this weekend?

Quilt on!

    I don’t see what’s wrong, but I believe you. Good luck with the fixing! I can’t wait to see how the quilt top will turn out, let alone the quilting!

    How are the blocks supposed to look? Like Pine Trees with a different stem? They look fine to me! Hope you didn’t use up the last bits of precious fabric.
