Well…everything was going according to plan yesterday. It was no time at all when I had the 4 corners paper pieced. The 4 brown “pointy things” took a little longer but at the time, they were okay. As is usually the case when something goes awry, I got distracted. I should’ve just set this aside, but instead I didn’t and the next thing I knew – if it isn’t obvious from the picture – I cut the “pointy things” too short on the sides which is why the center square was no longer square and I didn’t get it lined up correctly as a result.
Argh. I set it aside for the evening and took a break.
Back at it at lunch today, but I spent the first 10 minutes trying to find the pieces from yesterday. My sewing area isn’t that messy! I was starting to think I had accidentally tossed them when I cleaned up my scraps when it hit me. I had pinned it to the board…you know…so I wouldn’t misplace it. Whew! Back to my happy place.
I finished it up and that top left-hand corner is a little long but other than that, it came out okay. Still not perfect, but closer than it was yesterday!
I had time to spare so I got the Bloom block pieces cut, sewed, and basted into place. I still need to hand sew it into place and add sashing.
