I Had To Laugh

Blocks freshly pressed from this morning.


I must be fully awake this morning compared to other mornings because I have FINALLY noticed that the spool blocks ...

(Aren't they cute?)
... measure 8.5 inches X 8 inches. Yes, you did read that right. Lately, every thing I start, I have to redo. But this time, I had to laugh. Gosh! It's the third one I make and not once have I noticed anything wrong with this block? That's laughable! At least I only have three to redo and not like an entire quilt! lol.

After I am done fixing the spools, I'll start on the light and bright green of January and I will do it right this time. ;^D


Have a great one.

;^)

  2. Omg! That’s, well, not hilarious, but funny. In an I-totally-empathize-with-you kind of way. Could you just combine the short sides together and just add a narrow strip? Nah, you’d know it was there and it would always bug you. To the seam ripper! xo

  5. The spools and the buttons are so cute! I tend to make mismatch sized blocks, not always on purpose, so it would have taken me longer to notice.

  10. How many times have I made blocks only to realize they were not the right size?! You are not alone! At least you have a sense of humor about it.

  11. This has happened to me often and only last Wednesday. Chantal, it's because they look so right that you didn't spot it. Go easy on yourself. Have a great week.

  12. I'm so sorry you've hit a bump in the road with your adorable spool blocks. I've had lots of math disasters over the years, some that I couldn't even blame on "senior moments". Good job catching the problem! I probably wouldn't have seen it til all the blocks were done!
