I screwed it up!

Late last night, I finished this block! It is called "Hungry Soldiers" Row 1, block 8. I liked this block, lots of triangles but I liked it. This one has a total of 40 pieces in it.

This evening I did this one. It is called "Anxieties" Row 1, block 4. This one has 65 pieces in a 6 inch sqaure. This one took a while to do and now I think I will take it apart...later! If you look close you can see where I sewed the whole corner on wrong!!!
I don't think I will sew anymore tonight. After having 65 pieces in one block and then it turning out wrong, I'm just not in the mood to work on it anymore tonight.

Tomorrow is Richard's last day of work until Monday. We don't have alot of plans for the weekend. We plan on working on the house alot if it doesn't rain. Also on Saturday, we are going to Grayson to the flea market. Last year I went and I bought 56 yards of fabric for less than $100. I don't get to go too often or I would go broke!!! Saturday evening, we are going to a cookout at my BIL's house. I like them, but I would rather stay home and sew...

It takes time to see what is wrong with that block so maybe you could just let it stay this way.

Your CW blocks are just beautiful, I like the colours you used for "Battle of Springfield", it is such a nice one! Since I made a "task" for this week to sew as many challenge blocks as I can, the CW ones just have to wait...
Can't wait to see all the fabrics you're going to bring home!!!

Just love your quilt blocks! I just realized after months of reading your blog that you live in Kentucky! We hope to move that way in a couple years. I'm familiar with Grayson - how often are the flea markets? We go through that town each time we go to West Virginia to see my family!

I was fascinated when I heard about the flea market that you went to last year and all the fabric that you bought. I can't wait to see what you get this year. Have fun and shop till you drop.

Have fun shopping!!! Your blocks look good, even if the one corner is backwards (and I had to hunt to find it). Yes, I agree with you, I'd rather stay home and sew too.

I think the blocks look great! I wouldn't change that corner. I always sew on the 4th!!

Hi, Yes the corner is a little wonky, but if you look to where the 1/4 inseem will take you. I think it will end at the tip of the little block, which hides most of the corners problem. Know what i mean?

65 pieces? Are you completely insane, Kristie? You certainly amazed me! Is that one corner block turned around the wrong way? Suppose to be pointing the other direction? Is that it?

Don't you love it when you mess up like that! I agree, I would put it aside to fix later. I can't believe that has 65 pieces and it looks great! Have fun shopping - I would love to find some deals like that!

Bethany said...

I hate when this happens. It took me a second to find it as well. Your blocks look fabulous though. I've enjoyed seeing them as you post.

Beth said...

Christie, you are indeed ambitious to to a block with 65 pieces. I tip my hat to you!

Have a good 4th!

65 pieces in a six-inch block?? Holy smokes! I bow to you - I'm not worthy! :-)

The blocks are beautiful! Thank you for sharing them with us.

Hope you have a Happy Fourth of July in Kentucky. What a gorgeous state!

Wowsers!!! That is a TON of piecing! All those pieces in a little 6 inch block??? I'm in a little bit of shock......it boggles the mind! Your piecing is really good!

As always they are outstanding. I would change the corner...it will constantly bother you until you do.

Have fun shopping at the flea market.

Enjoy the 4th...laugh, eat, and sew when possible.
