Midget Block #78 - Stepping Stones
I am happy with the way this block turned out even though it took me quite a while to get it made. For some reason I just could not seem to understand the instructions. Whenever I read them it always ended up as blah, blah, blah in my head. I just could not get it! I laid out the pieces on my work table and I still could not correlate the pieces I had with the instructions that were given. I do have to admit, just between you and I, that every so often my brain does go into lock down and nothing goes in or out!
One thing I did notice is that some of the sizes given were incorrect (or at least they didn't work for me) and I did not notice it when I was cutting the pieces for the block. I did eventually clue in but even that didn't help me to figure out what I was supposed to do.
In the end, I needed to trim my little corner blocks once I constructed them and I also discarded the pieces that I had originally cut for the teal rectangular blocks. I was able to complete the block by doing my own thing for those four small sections. It worked better for me to just cut rectangles out of the teal fabric and then do stitch and flip for each corner. It did finish up pretty sweet though!
