You believe that, right? Right?
Yeah. I started another RSC project, despite the fact that I'm rolling over all of last year's projects. (Some of which were rolled over from the year before, but we're not going to talk about that right now.) (Or maybe ever...)
See, I spotted this really cool pattern and couldn't resist taking it for a test drive.
That was actually the second attempt at the test drive. There was rather a bumpy start.
See the partial block on the left in the photo below?
I'd cut all the pieces according to the directions, but when I started assembling them, nothing was fitting. I kept recutting, sewing, then discovering I had to recut for the next section as well. Even I get suspicious after a certain point.
I finally figured out the problem.
Those squares that are the starting point for the block? The directions say to cut them at 2.5", which clearly wasn't working - as soon as I cut them at 2" instead, everything fit together nicely. And I ended up with the size block I wanted, too, for the bonus.
I made the test block last month, but luckily it's in blues, so I can totally count January as covered. Unless, of course, I get tired of sewing On Ringo Lake and Burgoyne Surrounded and need a palate cleanser.
And there are all those other bins of RSC blocks that I should probably check. It's a pretty good bet that I could use a few more blues.
