RWB mixup

This is what it was going to look like.

But then I made nice little stacks of blocks and used nifty pins to mark the top and sides, started sewing and after the third row was done realized that I had somehow switched dirrections and mixed up the blocks.

SO... I now had 8 rows of 3 blocks done. I went ahead and set those aside, picked up my piles and sewed 2 together, leaving the third. I figured I had already layed them out so these blocks belonged together.

I ironed the sets of 3 and 2 and then took them back to the open area I have to use (since I don't have any wall space for a design wall) and re-layed the blocks... a set of 3, a set of 2 and a single block in each row. I then pinned and then labled my rows.... now off to sew again.... and remind myself to not try and get to fancy and mess it up again.


  1. I love laying quilts out and seeing how they're going to turn out. I recently finished my very first quilt top and I have quite a few quilts pieced, but alas they're just sitting in bags, begging to be sewn!

    I can't wait to see how it turns out!

  2. It's easily done to mess up the direction. I think it turned out very nice. Good work.

  3. You're like me. I start something and then realize I did something wrong. I am a perfectionist and usually will end up taking it out unless I can do a work around. This looks pretty good as a mess up! I probably would keep it. Steph
