|Block # 81 Snowball|
|Block # 49 Honeycomb|
|Block # 66 Periwinkle|
|Block # 41 Friendship Star|
It wasn't until after I took this group shot for last weeks blog post that I realized there was something wrong with my friendship star block. It's a little hard to see there in the lower right of the photo but one of the star points is upside down. I took the row apart and flipped it over and resewed it and then realized that didn't work either. Not sure what I was thinking. So I took it apart again and took the whole row apart (I did this while talking on the phone, I should have known better because I was already super tired) as a result I took the wrong row apart and had to then continue ripping seams. It was a good lesson learned that even though these blocks are addictive when you get tired you make silly mistakes and sometimes have to just say enough it's time for bed.
There are a lot of great pictures of blocks showing up over on flickr. You can check them out here. I really like the way a few people have put their own spin on some of the blocks. For example Camille really added a nice touch to block 73 Rainbow Flowers by adding a little detail in the corner of each layer. I love the way Kerri brought focus to the pinwheel in Big Dipper. I have already made this block but am considering remaking it with the pinwheel as the focus because you all know how much I love a good pinwheel. What about you, what are you doing to add a special touch to make this quilt one of a kind?
