Quilting Class 101 Homework

Just sewing right along......
Happy on my journey........

Even doing the chain sewing.......... I was so proud!
Then.....as I was ironing the perfect STAR and talking to my mom on the phone, I realized I had a perfect T!

So I started ripping seams.......
I finally got it done though!
Here are the 4 blocks I have done so far for our Quilting class!

2 Posts in one day......I couldn't help myself!

Our homework this week from our quilting class was to put this star together. I thought I was really doing good. My mom was at her house doing hers also. I called to see how she was doing on hers and she was frustrated and ripping out seams. Anyway, I was feeling sorry for her and telling her how to do it. (Like I knew what I was doing). While I was talking to her about how to fix hers, I was ironing my perfect star...........Then I discovered my "STAR" was a "T"! It was hilarious! I laughed so hard at myself. Anyway the pictures tell the story! But I finally did it!
My Mom's seam ripper is blogging......Go check it out!

I know how you felt. Been there, done that!! Probably everyone has done that sometime or other. It is usually about midnight when I do stupid things so I just turn off the sewing machine. I don't dare rip until morning figuring I'd probably poke a hole. Your blocks are beautiful.

I had a good laugh on this one. If only you could have seen what I did to mine! I ripped many times over, but finally got it done!

Good for you for the finished perfect star. And the T-block - well, you just designed your own new look that you might want to use someday - you never know, right? It can be frustrating though. At quilt retreat once a fellow retreat buddy was trying to make star blocks and I think she ripped them out many times and she is a very experienced piecemaker...it happens to all of us! Happy stitching!

Oh I'm so happy to hear you laughed. Since it's a regular occurence that attitude puts us ahead of the game.

I just removed an entire border from what I THOUGHT was a finished Quilt Top. It wasn't. It was an incorrectly applied border that couldn't Be.

I sort of sighed and smiled at my large mishap.

Your blocks are BEAUTIFUL by the way. Excellent!

I hate to tell you how many times I have sewn my pieces together wrong. Perhaps that is why they have invented seam rippers!!! The star looks incredible now though. I also like the heart one. Great colors.

Great job! That is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. You could tell you had taken such care to get it right, and then it was a T....hahahahaha It looks like patience won though, The star ended up being beautiful
