And I go round and round
A nice progression don't you think?
See those pieces under my blocks?
They are there because I, my friends, am an idiot.
Ok, not an idiot. Just challenged at times.
You see this quilt is going to be 48*48, assuming I don't play with the border size. Somehow this translated into my poor brain as 48 blocks, not the 64 I actually need for the 8*8 setting.
Now because I was a good girl and followed Carrie's instructions this is not a big deal. I have the pieces, sewn and ready. I just need to make 16 more blocks. I'm not sure they'll end up as scrappy as these ones but they'll be fine I'm sure.
I did something I have never done before on this block as well. I didn't try to control the fabrics, I just stuck my hand in the bin, and as long as it wasn't already in the block it went in. This has been both terrifying and liberating. The blocks seem to have turned out well, and basically balanced. I'll see when I put them all together.
Thanks everyone for your kind words on my Le Jardin Block Three. I was so terrified of messing that block up but like so many things I'm trying to not let that stop me.
