Happy blocks are done. Once I made 60 or 70 of them they started to come together. No, actually, it wasn't that bad, quite. I do like the lively look of the colors and design, and think it should be a fun quilt once the blocks are sewn together. Man, did I ever use a lot of fabric for these blocks. I think I mentioned that I kept trimming them all wrong and wasted about ten blocks! Oh dear. Maybe I can make a pillow or something out of the mistakes.
I am having a bit of an issue. One thing I hadn't really even considered is that it might be an problem to have the block segments line up nicely together when they were being stitched together.
Let me just say...they are not lining up right. I don't know why, but those darn seams are off. I used the Kaleidoscope Smart Plate Ruler, which I will demo in a future post. You would think the units would all come out the same, but I am experiencing a bit of a disconnect when it comes to lining all the seams up just so. I swear I am going to take up paper piecing. This is just so frustrating.
I was super engrossed in this project all Saturday, and thoroughly enjoyed making the block units. Today I will apply myself to sewing the blocks together and hope I will soon see that amazing secondary circular pattern emerge. And if it doesn't work, oh well. This has truly been a fun experiment. And there is more fabric where that came from. I really liked making a "one block" quilt, and think the next one I do might be the same concept. Maybe an Apple Core, or a Crumbler, or something along those lines.
