I'd been stitching away on my Ides of March quilt blocks...
aka Good Night Irene (from Terry's Sew Along).
I had all 31 of the 16-patch blocks done
plus all 31 of the X-blocks done!
So, I started on my border pieces and
made 36 of these:See how nice they look? Ready to sew into pairs!
Hold your horses, or whatever you hold when something just doesn't look right...
Maybe I was working too long, or too late...
because after they were
and pressed,I realized that I really needed
36 pieces with
ONLY ONE CORNER OF GREEN
so I could make 18 of these:And because of limited fabric
(I was using the 'found' stack of ten inch squares)
I had to unstitch all of these half-square triangles:so I could re-stitch them.
And re-stitch them I did!
Before I called it a night.
Here they are - re-done, ready to trim and press:But wait, OK, now I know it's time for bed!
Notice the block on the right compared to the blocks on the left:
What you don't want is the one on the right!
What would be left if you trimmed off that flip-y corner?
Not a square!!
Glad I only sewed ONE of those 36 triangles
back on the wrong way.
after I check and double-check all of my late-night-sewn blocks,
I plan on sewing all the blocks together.
Hopefully there are no more problem blocks, as
I want to get this quilt finished for the Ides of March
so it can live up to it's name!
Good Night (Irene)!
