UFO Challenge


I thought I was doing good.  Last week I was starting in on making the center nine patches for Talkin’ Turkey.  Remember?

Talkin-Turkey-12

Well I stole some time on Sunday to get these center done.  No one noticed, now did I that I was up to my old problems…not looking carefully enough at the directions.  I thought I was suppose to be making traditional nine patches but I was wrong.  I need to be making cross blocks.  UGH.

I had made LOTS of the strips that went red-neutral-red.  I didn’t need them.  I needed red-red-red!  UGH.

Back to the sewing the machine.  Happily my scrap bucket had enough more strips so I didn’t need to cut fabric.  I ended up getting up early Monday morning and this is what I accomplished.

Yahoo.  I the 36 CROSS patches done.

Coming up this week I’ll start in on some block assembly.  I can’t wait.

See you right back here next Wednesday.
