ha ha if I took pics of the bloopers and posted them, it would crash this thread... Grin...seriously, I have learned a lot from everyone and one of them is to lay out my pieces BEFORE I sew...I still flip things and iron the wrong direction and have to do it all again...I am worst at new patterns...

carolmb is going to end up with a whole quilt of bloopers.   Grin

Aside from the pinwheel I didn't notice had a blooper until after she'd received it, I did catch one blooper on amnesia's that I ripped out & redid before I sent.  Not to mention the three blocks I made for carolmb that were the wrong size...

That sounds like fun! Might have to put a limit on the number of bloopers we could send though. LOL I have mine on my design wall to remind me what not to do. But even the bloopers are pretty. I'm thinking they may end up in a sampler quilt. Have a party hats block that was intended for you that's too big, a pinwheel for Carolmb that's too small, quilter's choice blocks from last round (I cut two of each block so I could remake any I screwed up), modern strings for Foxymama that I forgot to use any white strings in, Xmas raw edge blocks that were from the remnants of Donniesgirl's blocks, then crumb quilt blocks that I've been making from the trimmings from the last two rounds and scraps from some fabric projects I did for other swaps this year. Just can't seem to make any headway in clearing out my fabric scraps.

After three weeks without the internet we are moved and back online Cheesy

Loving the yellow and blue stars, that could very well be going on to my to do list, the colour combo is so striking with the white background.

What a stunning collection we have in the gallery! Smiley

OMG How cute is that?   Maybe I should've picked a less traditional color scheme!

Ahhh the oopsies from this swap!  There was a period of time early on when I seriously contemplated giving up and dropping out because I just could NOT get anything to come out right   Sad   I have FOUR green garden fence blocks that came out too small.  FOUR.  On straight lines, not even any triangles!  Even after I got my groove going the first party hat block came out too small and I jinxed myself on the scotties.  After the first one came out perfectly I rolled through two more only to discover... yep, too small!  My seam allowance got a bit off.  I spent part of Friday ripping and re-stitching. 

I'm down to the last two and a half blocks.  I can honestly say I've learned a whole lot and I tried a bunch of brand new things.  My seam ripper has gotten quite the workout but I've had a blast and I'm really proud of the blocks I've been able to get completed! :-)
