JUST TAKES 2

I FINISHED THE TWO BLOCKS WE WERE GIVEN ON FEB.1ST. AND HERE THEY ARE. 


AND MY GEESE


I WAS WORKING EARLIER TODAY ON A PROJECT FOR WORK.  ANOTHER BABY QUILT.  THIS ONE ALSO HAS A PANEL IN THE CENTER.  IT ALSO HAS PINWHEELS ,BUT NOT ORDINARY  RUN OF THE MILL PINWHEELS.  MANY OF YOU HAVE PROBABLY HEARD OF THREE D PINWHEELS.  I HAVE DONE THEM BEFORE IN A  PREVIOUS BABY QUILT HOWEVER THE PATTERN WAS WRITTEN BY ANOTHER PERSON.  I FINISHED 6 PINWHEEL BLOCKS WHEN I REALIZED IT WAS NOT COMING TOGETHER AT ALL WELL.


NONE OF THE CENTERS WERE MEETING LIKE THEY SHOULD!  LOOKING AT THE PATTERN  AND READING VERY CAREFULLY I HAD FOUND THREE MISTAKES .  I HAD ONLY READ HALF WAY THROUGH THE PATTERN.  EVERYONE CAN MAKE A MISTAKE , AND I DO MEAN EVERYONE. NEXT TIME WHEN THINGS ARE NOT WORKING OUT STOP AND READ THAT PATTERN VERY CAREFULLY AND MAYBE SLOW DOWN YOUR SEWING. NO ONE LIKES TO HEAR THAT PART.  SOMETIMES IT CAN BE THE PATTERN AND NOT YOU!  I STARTED TO REDO THE PINWHEEL BLOCKS THE WAY I HAD DONE THEM BEFORE AND WITH CORRECTED MEASUREMENTS; LOW AND BEHOLD I GOT THIS


ALL POINTS MEETING IN THE CENTER!  WAALAH!  A SENSE OF RELIEF WASHED OVER ME. I WAS NOT WACKY(NO RETORTS PLEASE).  I HAD MY AWHAW MOMENT TODAY.  NOW I HAVE TO SIT DOWN AND RIP OUT THOSE SIX BLOCKS.  ALL FOR NOW,MARTHA

I am with you on the reading directions--I hate to do it--I often just look at the picture then wonder 'why' things aren't coming out as I want them too!!!!
Everything is lovely that you made--
and I love your 3-d pinwheels==they are on my 'to make' list!!!
Hugs, Di and miss gracie

The Just Takes 2 looks great - and you are staying up with it! I haven't started yet, but have the red fabric. I thought I had the white coming, and got a call they were out of it! =P
