audrie's block, one of two.

Well, hopefully. This block came together rather painlessly, over three weeks ago! I LOVE the style of these blocks...this is going to be an awesome quilt. I used one or two little pieces of my own scraps I'm sure you'll spot it, Audrie. I had so much confidence going into the second block a few days after the first. I didn't re-read the instructions. Instead, I turned on my Pandora Internet radio really loud and dove in with an air of fearlessness that turned out to be my downfall. I was so caught up in piecing that I just kept adding my wedges in a clockwork fashion. Of course, everything was going smooth until that last wedge! Ummm...lets just say I had to use my seam ripper very creatively. After seam ripping and sewing 3 times I decided to let it rest a little. So on my ironing board it has sat. Tomorrow I will try again. If it doesn't come out or my seams become too threadbare to sew again I promise to send along something sweet Audrie.
Aside from the drama, I really love these blocks. :)

  4. It looks great. And you guys crack me up. We will all recover someday from this stressful quilt block. Might need chocolate, though. Or ice cream.
