Sewing after midnight!!!

Hey ... it's me again!!! I was sewing away while watching Private Practice (which was a great episode by the way). I laid out the strip tube that I had sewn and cut away just like I was suppose to. When I got to the end of the strip, I grabbed a square and went to iron it. This is when I discovered that I had sewing wrong sides together therefore I wasted a whole strip! Yep ... the whole strip... straight into the scrap bin. I am not too happy! This may through my pattern off now. So, I am blaming this on two things: 1) watching tv while sewing and 2) I shouldn't sew after midnight without you!!!

One good thing that came out of sewing after midnight is the change I made to my first block!!! Take a look...

I like the way the flash brings out the bright colours. This material looks much duller that it appears in the picture.

Good Night


  1. Love it. I blame the mistakes on the t.v. Are you going to lay out the squares in rows or are you going to put them on point?
    Off to S'toon and the quilt store today!

  2. I hadn't thought about how I was going to lay the squares out. I think on point would look cook but I am not sure. It depends on how many squares I end up with. There are 10 or 11 colours in the jelly roll so I could do it on point and then fill in the outside squares with solid square. This is going to take some thinking!! Have fun at the quilt store!!!
