A Block Manfunction

Some people have wardrobe malfunctions…me, I have quilt block malfunctions.

I was happily sewing along on my garden party blocks  when my allotted sewing time ran out.  It was time for bed for me…..

Blocks-1

So I brought some pieces downstairs thinking I could work on them the next evening which I did.  But then I went upstairs and started sewing after that.  I ended up mixing my stacks and the pieces I thought were for the sashing in the block were actually part of the outside units of the block.  BUMMER!!

I now have eight blocks that are partially finished that can’t be used for anything because I used the pieces for the outside units as the sashing in other blocks……

Blocks-2

Unless I hit the jack pot when I dump out the 1 1/2″ scrap bucket where the strips originally came from I’ll be making more blocks.  UGH.  Here’s to hoping there will be some matching fabric hidden in this mess.

Blocks-3
If there’s not it’s nothing tragic just a little set back…and goodness knows my blog readers keep me in fabric scraps so it’s not like I’ll be devastated if I don’t find a match….but I can’t pass up the opportunity to did through and look at all those fabrics again either.

So off I go for the big dig!!  I’ll let you know what I come up with.

    Hi there Jo,
    What do you think about making 2 table toppers with your 8 “specially made” blocks? They could be set 2 x 2 and you would have 2 Christmas gifts made!
    Quilty Huggs,
