Despite my plans to get some more RSC sewing done this week, I got precious little accomplished.
This Jacks and Sixes block is all I have to show for this month's dark neutrals. At least it's a friendly block - check out that cheery 'hi' in the center.
I did get a few more nine patches assembled for the cornerstones of my Burgoyne Surrounded quilt. At some point I need to figure out how many I need, but since there's no such thing as too many nine patches, I'm not too worried about it.
And in the general category of projects I'm not starting, these split rail fence blocks appeared. This is Bonnie Hunter's newest leader/ender SAL, and I've been intrigued by the blocks since she first suggested them.
I had tried to stay focused on sewing the checkerboards together in the same way, but look at the one on the left. I was kicking myself and looking ahead to a session with the seam ripper.
When I set the blocks next to each other to see how they'd look, this is how they'd look:
So, I grabbed that 'wrong' block and tried it instead.
That's better. And good to know this early in the game. Imagine if I was months down the road with a couple hundred identical blocks.
You would have been able to hear the swearing from orbit, I'll bet.
