Moose on the Porch Quilt Police are on vacation. I guess I was too tired for this.
I had printed off the instructions, but the PDF cut off part of it. (the left side and the bottom)
I thought I had enough to go on.....OOPS! Bad assumption. I had made all the parts, I thought. I sewed it all together....ironed it nicely,
WHAT?!?!?! It isn't wide enough.
So I pulled out the PDF file and looked it over. Oh @#$#@ There are six stripes not five.! What to do? seam rip it all out? Not hardly! Toss it and start again..no thanks, I am afraid I would run out of Jelly Roll before the quilt along was over.
I know: FAKE IT! LOL. I have a new word now. This block is not just unique. Oh no! It is "extraunique" I figure that even people using the same Jelly Roll will have very different blocks. But they will have blocks that are the same. -right? Not me...I did a number on this one.
The Strip at the left side is the add on strip. I said, hmmm... looked at the leftover pieces and made it fit. You can see the design is "off" a bit.
Okay, another confession. When I first cut the pretty red strips I cut them 2.5 square NOT the 2.5 by 3.5 specified. I found that BEFORE I sewed. So I put those aside. Well, ya see, I decided to just use one of them for the add on strip.
So here is my quirky block. No, not quirky -- it is extraunique.
Hey don't forget the previous post and the giveaway with it. I will be adding a FQ of a batik fabric and some other stuff to it also. (other stuff includes more fabric I am thinking. )
