Most of my weekend was spend doing mundane house work (exciting stuff there) and finishing my Jungle Gym mini quilt. I hope to have a post about it within the next two days. I think I squeezed quilting on to every inch of this 20-ish square quilt. Here is a little sneak peak.
My other big project for the weekend was to work on my mystery block for the...drum roll please...
I had purchased some practice fabric to test out my block before the real fabric actually arrives. I got my instructions out cut my first bits of fabric and realized there was no way I had enough fabric. What the??? I read and I re-read. What was going on?? Then I realized the one rectangle was longer than the actual block. Something had to be incredibly wrong. I WALKED AWAY.
After a bit of time I got my trusty lap top out and looked at my EQ7 design. It took a few minuets to find the blunder but it finally popped out at me. My block size was still set at 30 inches from when I was working on the block for the Quilters play. Oops! Big oops! Guess what? When I changed the block size back to 12, things looked much better. So back to the cutting board this evening. At least I wasn't playing with the for real fabric ; )
This also gave me the idea, that I may keep the 30 inch sizing and also make a mini quilt of the block. I think it will have some nice quilting potential. So the lesson from this weekend is, size really does matter :)
