This is block 2 (colorway 1) pieced together. I showed you the makings of it in this post.
The seams are causing a bit of ‘lift’ in some of the blocks, but overall, I’m good with how it sewed up.
Then I happily started cutting up the fabric I had chosen for colorway 2.
Then I sewed them all.
And trimmed them.
To the wrong size — because I cut the ‘goose’ a 1/2″ too small. This meant I had 1 by 2″ geese instead of 1 1/2 by 3″ geese.
This became a defining moment in the making of this quilt. No, seriously, it did!
I went back to those waste triangles and had a total ‘make it work’ attitude. I sewed them together with a center seam and made a third flyer for each unit.
To size up to a finished 6″ block, I also added a white sashing and a little square in the middle. Which required ‘partial seaming’ which I had to invent along the way because I am too
bull-headed lazy to stop and refer to a book or Google it when I’m in the middle of something!
(and, in my defense, I don’t have wi-fi in basement).
But I do love this version of the block SO MUCH MORE!
A Happy Accident, indeed!
What about you, have you had happy accidents in your sewing room?
