I have no idea where February went. Seriously.

And I have not a whole lot to show....but click on the OleFrogEyes widget to see my progress on my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler....

I completed F9 tonight.

This one.... there are no words no printable words. Even with making triangles to avoid the dreaded "Y" seams.... It was confusing. It involved unsewing. It turned out too big.

I have resolved that I will absorb the extra quarter inch of extra size by making skinnier sashes around that block. So there.

I think the next block will be easier - if for no other reason than there are paper piecing options. Yay!

After F10, I'm switching over to Farmer's Wife for about ten blocks..... And I hope to get together with Karene next weekend and tackle a Lovebird Lane block.

The projects are never ending. I have so many things I want to make. My garden is calling me. I seriously must figure out how to get over this "work" thing.

It's taking up way too much of my quilting and gardening time!

Joy - I think that blocks looks wonderful even if it came out too big. I like your sashing idea for it. I think you'll find the same thing happens with the FW blocks occasionally too. There have been a few that have driven me nuts.

Work is overrated. LOL! That is of course unless you want to eat.

I think the block came out fantastic! You did a great job.

That is an awesome block! So pretty! Did ya know that you are in the blog spotlight on OFE now? We have a quilty blogger with over 500 followers that will review and hopefully send folks to look! Maybe we will get more subscribers!
