One of these things is not like the others....
Or more like...HALF of these things are NOT like the others! I was happily sewing along on my second batch of plaid star struck blocks to make the quilt a queen sized one.
I got all the way to the pressing point before I realized that this second set of quarter blocks spin in the OPPOSITE DIRECTION! (*&@#$(*&(*&@!
What to do? What to do? I think I will try to come up with an alternate setting, and have two quilts. And use it as an object lesson on quilter's dyslexia after 11pm at night :c)
That WHOLE pile of quarter blocks at the bottom right of the picture are ALL wrong...or...maybe not wrong....just... DIFFERENT?!
Here are the "correct" blocks laid out. The center will measure 64" X 80" before borders so it will still turn out to be a nice twin/full size when done.
Oh the joys of quilting!
