Rocky Road to Kansas

Bit of a rocky road to block 8 as well.  First, I tried to scrap piece the strips - I was not at all happy with the result and abandoned things partially done.  The extra fabric bulk was contributing to my issues.

Then, I started over by cutting 2" strips of two of the fabric and sewed them together, pressed seams open and then cut out with the template.  This one went together much better.

I am happy with it.  It is relatively square - not sure if the photo actually shows this and different enough from the first time we saw this block.

Beautiful weekend of sunshine.  Took a walk with my daughter to see how the trees are just starting to turn here in NC.  Have a great week.

Happy Stitching!


  1. 'Twas a funky block, yes? Like how yours turned out... I have to unsew one of mine... it turned out so wonky...

    Wonder what's in store for us this coming Saturday?

  2. Love it, your stripes are wonderful :)

  3. Your block is great, but now I'm a little worried. I was going to try the strip piecing, but now I'm not so sure. I do love how you adapted and the result is a great looking block!


Leave a stitch...
