Joyfully sharing my quilting journey and other bits and pieces that make up daily life.

Look how misaligned everything is!
I started working on this block last week and I just didn't get it finished. It wasn't for a lack of trying that is for sure. I have had so much trouble with this $$#@#$$$ block. I have taken the pieces apart a couple times and sewn them back together and I still cannot make it fit like it should. I did try to add on the background squares and triangles a couple times both by machine and by hand and I just cannot do it!
Even adding the triangles was near impossible!
I am pretty sure I am having so much trouble because this Midget Block (#62) is called Liberty Star and I am not making it in the traditional colours of red/white/blue so it is staging a rebellion! I do like the fabrics I have chosen and I will use them for the next version as well.
I will remake it sometime this week but I will just hand-piece the whole thing and forget about the paper-piecing portion completely.
