My Poor Little Quilt Block

January Block

Feb. Block
( This is the problem block!)

March Block

Oh no!

I see another problem, but I can fix this one quickly!

Do you see it?





Do you see the problem with the Feb. Block? Beautiful block, but way too small!!
How did I do this??

This is the quilt that my
Mom & I are working on with our favorite quilt store Lavender Lime. The first Saturday in the month we go and attend a little 15 minute class called the Saturday Sampler and we receive directions and fabric for a quilt block. At the end of the year we will have 12 blocks for a quilt. It is a lot of fun and we learn a lot. Remember in the last post that I was frustrated with the Feb. block and could not figure it out. I took my quilt block pieces to the quilt store and they helped me understand how to put it together. But as you can see on the last picture, there is a problem!!! Way too small!!! Thank goodness the quilt store has already told me that they will give me some more fabric to redo this block. I thought I would show you all of them so far. I just finished this months block that we received yesterday. So once I get more fabric for the Feb. block I will re-do and this time I will do it right.....I HOPE!

What a great project for you and your Mom. Sounds like a lot of fun and I know you'll get it right now. It will be fun to follow your progress.

Those are lovely quilt blocks. I admire all you quilters. My grandmother was one and I am lucky to have two of them.

Hi Valerie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. That's funny about your block. That's so typical of my mom and I. It makes quilting exciting?!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. My friend made an entire quilt with the tri-rec blocks. She hated them!! So you are certainly not alone. I've been too "chicken" to even try it.

Oops!!! So glad they gave you new fabric to redo the Feb. block. The March one should be an easy fix. Are you becoming good friends with your seam ripper????

Pretty blocks, pretty fabrics and great skill builders. I love that. I love anything that challenges me to work through it. You go girl!!!

Great job on the second one, anyway! Drop it into the orphan pile. I have built a little stash in my orphans that I add to occasionally.
You are ahead of me, now!
I actually think block two is the prettiest one as far as design and color.

Sash the little one in the light color fabric. No one will know. I've done the same thing.

I just do not have the patient to quilt. I love quilts and have collected many. I appreciate all you quilters who take time to do such beautiful and hard work.

Have you learned yet what the reason is for the block being smaller? I don't sew those triangles if I can help it so I'm not experienced enough to offer advice.
