Never Let a Good 'Oops' Slow You Down

Still more to do, but yes, I continued on with the 'oops' factor. You know me, avoid the seam ripper if at all possible and concentrate on efficiency. After a little research on the Net, I realized that although this is not the classic look of the Rolling Stones block, it is not completely uncommon after all. If I wouldn't have said anything, you could have thought I did it on purpose and of course thought I was brilliant too! lol
Rolling Stone blocks
I probably should have made one block to put on the wall directly in front of my sewing machine when I first started sewing. But then I wouldn't have ended up with these. And that would have been really sad, don't you think? My daughter said the blocks look like they're falling apart which I thought was an interesting observation. I can't quite see what she does, but still, I'm liking what I see on the wall more and more. Okay, that's a bit lame. More accurate to say that I'm starting to get excited about what's on the wall! Like, when I walk around the corner into my quilt room, I have to pause and stare for awhile. That kind of excited.*wink

There is a lot scheduled for this week (basketball games, Christmas concert, luncheon with friends, picking my son up from the airport, etc.) but hopefully I will still find a few minutes here and there to sneak into the quilt room and sew a few seams. I'm actually starting to get very curious about this quilt...

  3. It's not a "mistake" - it's a "variation" of the traditional block. See, you were just being an original! Whatever, it's a great block and I too like the way these are looking. They kind of remind me of Tinkertoys somehow.

    Hope you get some stitching squeezed into your week!

  5. I really like your fabric choices too!! I blew up your picture to see the polka dots and stripes. They are like Tinkertoy shapes. Always fun to see what you are sewing on--- good luck on the sneaky sewing.
