So remember yesterday I was so excited that I had all the Wild Child blocks finished….well that was all good until I started sewing them together and discovered this….
Some of my blocks are turned the wrong way. UGH. I’ve been checking them out as I sew rows together and so far, I have nine that are wrong. DANG. If you look at the photo below the string pieced part of the block is suppose to go diagonally in the same direction if they are white or turquoise. Some of mine don’t.
At this point I don’t know it there will be more but I do know that there are nine wrong…maybe more. So what’s a girl to do?
My first reaction was that I’d rip them out while I sit with the little ones at nap time…
Then my next thought was…nine blocks. That’s a good start on a baby quilt and goodness know I need another baby quilt. Honestly, I know several pregnant gals that I’ll be needing to make a baby blanket for. That does mean I’ll have to make more blocks for the original quilt too.
Hmmm. I love making these blocks. I long string piecing. Well there it is. I’ve decided. A baby quilt and more block sewing is on my agenda. Hopefully I can recover and get my replacement blocks sewn by next week’s UFO challenge check in.
