First, miscalculated and only cut enough Magic 8 squares to make half the HSTs that were originally called for in this quilt for each quilt block. Then, I made another goof with the four patches. Notice anything strange in this photo?
|Elongated 4-patches, anyone?|
Time to cut these red/white 4-patches down to size:
|Trimming ALL the red/white four patches down to their correct size|
|Right size 4-patch|
|ALL red 4-patches trimmed - check!|
Now, ALL the cheddar/white and the red/white are all trimmed and ready to be sewn into blocks. Yes indeedy, I'm consistent IF nothing else! Elongated the cheddar/white 4-patches, too:
|the reds and the cheddars ALL trimmed!|
I was determined to finish this quilt in time to start Bonnie's annual Mystery Quilt that begins on Black Friday. This year it's Allietare! At this rate, I'll be lucky to have it completed by next year's Mystery!
I need a stress-buster - time for some 'quality quilting time' w/Miss Betty!
