and this is the reason I always buy extra fabric

While sewing all the corner units to set the "Amish with a Twist" blocks on point, I realized that a few of my blocks didn't match those shown in the quilt pattern photo. What?! And I had been so careful labeling everything and translating it from the black background version color chart!

The Diamond Star and Flying Geese quilt blocks do not contain that pewter grey color in the pattern quilt (and I didn't much care for how dark it made these blocks anyway) so I remade them swapping the pewter for a light pink. The revised versions are on the left in the photos below.


Less dreary = much better :) And I'll just toss those extra blocks into the "future kitchen sink quilt" bin where they will be resurrected into something fabulous far into the future...


But for now, the word of the year is FOCUS. As in keep-your-head-down-and-finish-this-quilt-before-starting-anything-else focus!

The on-point setting triangle units are all pieced and sewn onto all of the blocks ...



Sashing and cornerstones are up next for these blocks and then two borders. Yay for progress!!

  2. You're right the revised versions look much better. I live the on point settings.
    Focus is a great word for the year.
