I am a little late posting today. Now that I think of it, I have felt like I was late all day! Or maybe just sideways.
When we last saw our heroine (last Wednesday), she had just finished stitching these:

And at the end of today, we have these:
Yes, it’s the same blocks! If you remember, I mentioned that I was going to check the measurements before continuing. Well I did – and they were more than an inch off. A whole inch!!! So, I dug out the instructions and read them again. Yup, it said to trim the blocks to 9 inches . . . twice! . . . and in bold type! Oh dear. Time to bring out the seam ripper.
Two hours later. Yes, that was a LOT of trimming. I don’t know why I have this problem with trimming half-square triangles. I seem to always forget!
So, while I did have to go back to square one, I also managed to get the rest of the quarter blocks sewn together.
And now I am finally ready to move on to the next step for this quilt. I had hoped to get to some more paper piecing today, but that didn’t happen.
Definitely a sideways day!
