I had the top of half of the Charming Boxes all done by 3 pm Tuesday. Rows 5 and 6 were assembled and joined. Row 7 was done and waiting for Row 8 to be assembled.
Then I saw this-----I cropped a previous picture to show you how close in colors these two blocks were but I didn't see it till they were all sewn together.
So this afternoon---wouldn't you know this was a block with short seam allowances that I had not only double stitched but zig-zagged. The seam allowances did not stand up to the overcasting but it was one that I had made. Fabric a bit stretchy and ravel-y so I didn't try to selvage it. Good-bye! After debating about borrowing from row 8 or switching something around in the top row, I made another block using a newly acquired background fabric from our trip to the quilt shop last week. The one next to it did re-locate. LOL after I said nothing was going anywhere else!! Famous last words, right?
Repair work done, Row 8 was finished up. That just left a few more joining seams to do and the top is done. Woohoo!
Next up, Aline's D9P but probably not today. I need to wind a ton of bobbins and clean out the machine. I am sure it is a linty mess after using so many pre-cuts! Besides, it is time for supper, whatever that is going to be.
