BLOCKS BEHAVING BADLY ( AKA METRO AREA)

Here we are at month number 3 in the Patchwork City block of the month at Katja's Quilt Shoppe.

For whatever reason these few blocks caused me some trouble.


This one needed ALL the stitch rippers..........and chocolate  : )


the other two went together alright


Then there was this one.  I cut the large triangle the wrong size twice!  I blame the fact I was sewing in a dimly lit hotel room while my hubby recovered from eye surgery. After all that, the cat is upside down. I'm leaving it


By now, we are getting quite a nice pile of black and white scraps. This will allow for lots of choices if you want to change things up a bit


Here they are all together.  I am loving that plum colour.
Hopefully I can get the next month's together with no mistakes : )

Enjoy your week

Don't worry, Carla, it happens to all of us and isn't it frustrating to say the least.
Good job on your blocks and I love that blue and aqua mix, who would have thought eh?

The blocks look amazing and sometimes good things need a bit more time. Hope your husband is doing well.

Gorgeous blocks, Carla and the colours are so rich.

Ella said...

They look fabulous, though. Are you doing it as your own BOM? I'm looking for motivation to make a dent in mine.

In spite of all of the troubles you have had, they are really gorgeous. The colors are so pretty.

Well they all look really nice even if some of them gave you trouble. Such good use of color too.

Caroline said...

Oh those plum blocks, my favorite by far!

The blocks look great! I love the effect of bold colours and strong contrast.

This block looks complicated.... Great colours...Hope "B" is recovering, and now can see his beautiful wife.

I don't think the upside-down cat matters. Could you rotate the block anyway?
Was it the long stripe down the middle that gave you grief? I can imagine having to unpick that and resew so it lines up in the neat continuous stripe you achieved.
I hope hubby's eye is ok.

These are stunning! I received month two in the mail last weekend and squealed with glee. It's giving me the motivation to finish the last block on month one! That said, I'm going to make sure I savor month two before I move on to month three... ;-)
