Karl had to see his surgeon at 2:00 so after I dropped him off (we knew his visit would take at least 1 1/2 hours) I came back home and started my block. I intended to do at least 2 of them, but started with the most time consuming one. Boy was it time consuming!
I sewed each individual section and then thinking it looked perfect, I sewed the rows together..................one row -- the middle one -- is wrong!!!!!!!!! I could have kicked myself around the block.
Reverse stitch! Re-do.
It took me about 10 minutes to correct the mistake. I just did the four corners that were wrong, gave it a good press and its good to go.
When the top is done and it will be after the May meeting it will look like this
I have 6 blocks done and there are nine in all.
Two more tomorrow and then the last one at the end of May. It is only 21" x 21" when completed, but I'm going to use the stars with the sashings as a centre for a quilt. I'll add an inner border of the background fabric and hopefully use a bright red for the border.
I have a place to send it to and I know it will be very much appreciated.
I didn't tell you that I had trouble printing off the patterns too. I forgot to sent my printer properly and that gave me angst. I should have known from there I was going to be in trouble.
This picture is for those of you that think we only have fantastic weather. This is during the height of the storm that rolled through last night. Rain, wind, dark clouds, but look at my neighbour's tree. Isn't it beautiful?
