Frog-stitchin'!!!




Alrighty then!! Thanks to all you nice ladies who very nicely told me...YOU DID YOUR BLOCKS WRONG, SILLY GIRL!! I took all the black blocks apart from last post, and am in the process of doing them correctly. I am on my THIRD attempt, having put them all together wrong...again! I have no idea, after piecing things for years and years...I am having a tough time with this! My fabrics are getting a little ragged...yet I will persevere! LOL!

Have a great day,


Julie

Is this right? (I prefer the other way...)

Hey! I have both of those black musical fabrics in some of my Orca Bay blocks! Nice looking block!

LOL - having to re-do a third time ranks right up there with what I did on Monday ... I ripped out an entire row of blocks (7-10" blocks = 1 row) because I thought I had the orientation wrong, only to realize after I had the row of blocks ripped out that they were sewn correctly. The top is completed and I've begun quilting it, so all's well that ends well, right? ;-)

Oh, Julie, I can understand why you did it--you want it "right," but I really liked your blocks. And who knows--you may have had the coolest quilt on the blog block. (And you may still.) : )

What a woman!!! You go girl.

KaHolly said...

I thought it looked very nice the other way. I can't wait to see the affect once you change them. Poor thing!

Lori said...

Every way you've had them has looked good to me:)

Terry said...

I rather like them the wrong way! LOL But good for you doing all the unpicking and resewing! I don't think I would have!

Pat said...

I've heard that spray starch and ironing will "revive" fabric pieces that are getting raggy from "frogging" them. Good luck with your project! (I probably would have left them wrong and done my own thing!!!)

i, too, liked them the other way. i haven't had the time to start orca bay yet, but i saved your picture to remind me to do mine that way too....

regan said...

Ok....it might not have been the correct placement for THIS quilt....but I really like the effect those blocks had with the opposite blocks! It's a very cool design! Hmmmmmm!

Kate said...

hey, Julie - I did mine wrong, too! Only a few, but I do understand how easy that particular arrangement is to get confused on... hugs.

Leeanne said...

Whoa...that's commitment! I like that wee music fabric, I have that, I have a few musical fabrics as my hubby is a musician.

Oh what a bummer! Rippin' is not fun! Although, your way did make a beautiful layout. :-) I am way behind~ need to get sewing on Orca Bay again soon. ;-) Have a happy day!

My last Civil War Quilt block did the same thing to me. The pieces moved around on me before I sewed them and had to be unsewn. More than once!!!! Some days are just like that.

Sharon said...

Wow, I would have left them and seen if "your" way would have worked. But I understand the need to "make it right". Looks like it's going to be a fun quilt.

Jan said...

Oh, I'm sorry for you having to frog stitch. What a bummer! Hope it goes quickly!

Marj said...

They were kind of neet done wrong, but they are really cute stars when put together the way intended. Glad that you have had enough time to redo them, you deserve a prize for preserving to get them righted.

Jeanne said...

I thought your blocks looked great the other way. I also know if it bothers you now, it's best to rip it out and start again. LOL

Debi said...

I also liked them the other way, but I admire you for going back and making them right...better woman than me! lol

Floss said...

I would have just left them the other way, I thought they looked great.

Merilyn said...

Oh goodness! having to undo all that work!! Never mind I would have to do the same thing if I made a construction error! We live and learn huh!!! All the very best to you Julie for 2012!!

Elaine Adair said...

I also liked them the "wrong" way! I would have left them as is, just to find out the surprise of having a DIFFERENT pattern than a gazillion others doing the quilt.

ladydi said...

Yep. I would have left them as is. They were lovely.

Michelle said...

I like those "wrong" black blocks! They may not work for Orca Bay, but they're sure neat.
