Speed Bumps *#@$
This block has 5 pink and white 4-patches and the 4 patch in the center should be oriented in the same position. I guess I just turned the blocks around willy nilly so that I could nest the seams. I didn't even think about the orientation. As you can see in the photo, I had joined quite a few blocks together. I probably could have taken a short cut and just let it be but I didn't like that the diagonal chains would be all messed up. So...out came the seam ripper. By the time I finished with it yesterday, I had sewn together quite a bit of the top. I just need to finish up the last three sections. Wouldn't you know it....I ran out of pink and white 4-patches.
I haven't spent any time in my sewing studio today because I just got back from visiting with my sister Glenda. She lives just over 80 km away and it takes me about 1.5 hours to drive each way. While I was there she and I picked some plums from her very pregnant trees. I wanted to take photos but I forgot to take my camera with me.
