Crazy as it may sound, I am thankful for my seam ripper. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
I chain pieced the center four-patch of quarter circle blocks for all 12 blocks, and they came together just fine. But when I sewed on the bottom border for my test block, it looked a little bit funny when I stepped back to take a look. Drat. Upside down.
It’s pretty amazing that sewing has a real life “undo” button with a seam ripper. I mean, it’s not ideal, but it didn’t take long to fix.
Just after sewing the test block, we rearranged our cottage and I no longer have a design wall. So hopefully I can get the rest of these blocks pieced without to much unsewing as I go. Time will tell!
