Third Time's a Charm

After a mind numbing day of accreditation and vertical teaming meetings I thought I deserved a little time playing with fabric. Lacking the backing fabric for the baby quilt, I thought I would whip up one of Amy's BOM's. Cut, sew, press, picture -- woops, the nine patches were flipped. How many times do you notice a mistake only when looking at the photo? No problem, rip, flip, stitch, press, picture.

Oops again, the bowtie blocks are headed different directions. Check the directions, rip, flip, stitch, grumble a little, look a the block this time.

Finally! Who knew such a simple block could go wrong in so many ways? Lesson learned, next time wake up from zombie like trance before trying something requiring thought.

Okay, make sure you have a small cup of coffee (or Dew) before the next block :0)

Happy Monday!

OH! Almost forgot to say...

I like your color choices too!

But just look at those perfect points.

You aren't the only one, I made more mistakes on this block than any other one block ever. I love yours, the background puts me in mind of a lacy wrought iron garden gate. It would go well with a Thomas Kinkade painting "The Open Gate".

The block looks great. So, who's counting anyway...Your colors are very good too. I love the swirlies in the background fabric... yes, maybe next time you should drink some coffee first. Take care and have fun. Hugs, Linda
