Scrappy Sunday

i made a Block #34 yesterday using my last middle square.at least i thought it was my last. turns out it was that square i found in my stash a few weeks ago. but oops. i didn't check the size before i started sewing. it was 1/2 in too big. couldn't figure out why my pre-cut-just-a-bit-bigger-than-9-1/2 in.-strip-last-to-sew-on was too small. the whole time i was thinking i am going to miss this block. and that i should just make it again. and what would i do different. i was also working on my Fala blocks.so today i will re-sew my scrappy block. and finish up the handwork on Fala.

I've enjoyed your scrappy blocks! Oh your Fala quilt is too cute. I must be late to the game on this one. Is Fala the name of your dog?

Oh, puppy love! Too cute!

We've all made that same "picked up the wrong piece" mistake. Kick myself every time I do.

Karen,
I was too late to get into the Halloween Spooktacular swap. I have an old Halloween round robin that needs some filler blocks. Would you like to make an extra one for me in exchange for a block from me? I'm not interested in the 9 patch -- only the theme block.

I can be reached at atticw@hotmail.com. My blog is at dreamworthyquilts.blogspot.com.

Thanks,
Deana (dj)
