One of those days....

We've all had them...
we wonder why we got out of bed
or started something new.

I had one on Sunday.

My plan was to listen to the basketball game on the computer.
(I cannot watch my team play on TV....
I have to be doing something while watching tv of any kind
and I can't knit or stitch AND watch a basketball game at the same time.
Therefore, I listen and then can sew or whatever while the game is being played.
My husband thinks I am crazy, but...)


So...
I had my project planned.
The game was on and I started cutting pieces
for the next set of blocks for the mystery quilt for my quilt group.


The pieces were cut and then sewn together.


As soon as I finished the 60 pieces,
I realized I had sewn the white piece on upside down!
On Every Single One!!

Out came the seam ripper and off they came.



The pieces were sewn on correctly and then the other side was added.
After cutting the other pieces and sewing the block together,
I saw another HUGE error on my part.


These blocks are supposed to go together,
as in BE THE SAME SIZE!

UGH!!
I wasn't paying any attention and made the larger block by mistake.

So....
what to do now?

Do I make the churn dash blocks for the bigger size
or the star blocks for the smaller size?
I did not enjoy making the star blocks 
so the churn dash blocks will probably be made.

However,
these are being put away for another day!

Pay Attention Ramona!!


Happy Quilting!

But those star points fit on so much better the way you did first! Been there, done that. Not sure about the different size blocks, though. Like you, I'd remake the churn dashes. It would have been so much easier to take if your team had won.

Oh gosh....I can so relate!!! Time to put it away and come back later.

Oh NO! Wow. If it makes you feel any better Ramona, I have days like that too.

Oh how frustrating! But we do all have days like that, don't we? Keep the small blocks to make another project. Your star blocks certainly would take longer, so I would stick with that size.

Oh, gosh! I have been there and done that one too! Love your fabrics!

Oh no, on your blocks! I hope you figure out what to do, hard decision. I rarely "watch" TV, my husband doesn't understand either.
