Rail Fence Flimsy
My process for creating a flimsy from blocks is to sew them first into pairs, and the pairs into larger blocks sets, etc. I think when I was joining the larger blocks together I must have turned a couple of them 90 deg. in order to avoid clusters of certain fabrics. The problem with that is I ended up messing up the light/dark 'weaving of the rails'. In order to keep with the design/pattern I should have turned the blocks 180 deg. instead. Grrr....out came the seam ripper!!!!
Everything is fixed now but if there are any other mistakes then I am blind to them because I think I have a beautiful flimsy.
This quilt top really did come together fairly quickly even with my latest oopsie. :) I still need to figure out a name for this quilt and to decide on a backing fabric but in the meantime it is currently in the 'waiting to be quilted' pile. :)
