A little while ago I joined in www.quiltingjetgirl.com Yvonne's quilt a long for her snowflake shimmer quilt using up the kona left over from the "behemoth" or wedding quilt I've been working on. The funny thing about leftovers, whether it be roast meat, white sauce or fabric is that whilst there looks to be loads, there's never quite enough.
This week was the first in the actual sewing. Easy Peasy thinks meself. A square within a square. Two opposing darks and two opposing lights. I even double checked to ensure it is fabric A and C for these blocks. What I forgot was the order the blocks are sewn in ..... not dark, dark, light, light, but dark, light, dark, light. As Eric Morcambe used to say in his piano piece, "I know all of the right notes not just in the right order". Luckily I hadn't completed all four sides, just three of them!
A few minutes later and we were back to the beginning again.
Dark, light, dark, light. One, two, three, swing your partner to the left, you know the type of thing. #
From there all progressed swimmingly and I now have three little piles of square within a square. They aren't trimmed yet, but they are sewn, well nearly all of them. They will be next time. I read Lisa's link up post and she said slow and steady. Slow and steady it is.
