I made one block up first even though I knew chain piecing was probably the way to go on this one. I tend to make some pretty silly errors sometimes and wanted to be sure I didn't do that on a whole bunch of blocks. So here is my first block I posted up on Instagram all proud like.
Lots of people liked my photo-I may or may not have even geeked out a
Once this block was fixed I was ready to set about sewing my next 4 blocks together. I had sewn all of the small parts up on Sunday night so Monday after correcting the first block I got busy sewing those next four. I thought things were going great and I was so excited at how they were turning out. I made a mistake on row 3 that required me to take out two seams each on two blocks because I had reversed the fabrics but no big deal. I kept trucking along and got the first four rows sewn together when I looked again. Wait that doesn't look right!?! Sure enough I had twisted around the little nine patch in row two and four on all four of the blocks. Not happy with my seam ripper or myself I took the blocks back apart. It was getting late but I was so close to being done before I noticed the mistake. I may or may not have stayed up until one in the morning putting the blocks back together but it was so worth it.
I'm using the Scrumptious bundle that I got as a Christmas present from my brother and sister in law with some good old Kona Snow. I ran out of Kona though so this project is now on hold while I wait for some. With one local stored out of business and the other closed while they move to a new location I had to order it online. Of course there are worse things than fabric shopping.
