Cruising on Calico

After my earlier flub up, things are back on track with Calico Garden. I’ve made two more blocks for the top. And I even surprised myself by having enough energy to do the whole process (make HSTS, cut HSTS, iron HSTs, trim HSTs, and assemble blocks) in one day!

I was very, very proud of myself, until I uploaded the pictures…


How on earth did I not notice that the bottom corner on the left hand block is facing the wrong way?????

Oh well, it’s an easy enough fix, and I’ll tackle it when I get ready to make the last two blocks. That’s right…


Just two more blocks and I can start assembling this big beauty. It’s going to have sashing and cornerstones, plus an outer border. This will probably be the biggest quilt I’ve made so far!

    I hate when that happens. I discover boo boos too when I take photos of my stuff. It is looking good though. It makes me dizzy thinking about the process of making that block.


  2. I catch more errors through the camera lens than I ever do by just looking at my projects. At least you caught this one early, and not after you’d started the quilting! (Been there, done that…)
    I love your happy stars – it’s going to be a stunner!

    The blocks are just awesome! Great that you caught the misturned block so early that it will be an easy correction. Really looking forward to seeing this assembled.
