Oops! Yeah This Happened!
When selected our February OMG project to share on Elm Street Quilts link up we were doing great. Pretty, pretty fabrics were selected. Remember these?
We had to do the math ourselves to determine how much fabric we would need for a baby quilt. Of course, we didn’t order enough of the white and red dotted fabric. How is it we fail at math each time? Maybe I didn’t try all that hard and just threw 2 yards out there. Perhaps.
We are using the pattern Make Mine A Double quilt block. Three blocks in and this oops happens:
How many things can you find that are wrong with this portion of a block? Notice those navy points of the star that are turned the wrong way. Not just one side but BOTH. Oops. Seriously, how do you not notice that until it is all sewn together and even pressed? I don’t know, but I managed. I possess a special skill set.
Another quilter friend said she felt better seeing that others make silly mistakes. Oh yes, I make plenty of silly mistakes and oops. All.the.time. Just ask my ripper extraordinaire Sue about how many times she has to rip for me. This one I took care of all myself. All of the little pieces are in the to-be-sewed pile now.
