Jacks Chain -Ooooops


 

 Got up at 4:15 this morning in order to watch the Royal Wedding coverage which started at 4:30.    What better handwork to do while watching the Royal Wedding than some English Paper Piecing?

Here is my Jack'[s Chain top so far, just needing the final border rows.

I pieced the four corner blocks this morning and actually got one of the corners sewn on.  They are kind of odd shaped at this point and was a puzzle to add to the corner.

So the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now married, and I take my quilt to the guest room to admire my work of the morning.

Oooooops, I had sewn the corner to the side, lol, completely missing the corner.  Plus I already pulled out the papers. 

Oh well, it can be fixed, but daggum (been watching too much Tomater Tales with my grandson) I don't like ripping out EPP!

To make sure this does not happen again, and with me it very well could. I put a clip on each of the corners.

And while I am sharing my goofs, here is Block 1 of a new quilt I am working on.  The block is actually a green print, but the photo shows up here as yellow for some odd reason.  I tried to edit and make it green, but then the back ground turned a green as well.

Anyway this block went together so well, that I made the mistake of telling my friends how forgiving this block is as it is not so noticeable when the points don't exactly line up.

JINX!

Here is block #2 - my grey block.  Forget what I said about goofs not showing up....having to eat my words and rip my stitches on this one.

Thanks for stopping by,
Teresa

Beautiful Jack's Chain! It is all EPP ... even the Nine Patch Blocks? I have never tried one of these but I have always admired them Sew intricate.

Your green block is very interesting. At first I saw a flower and then I saw a star. I love blocks that form secondary patterns. Looking forward to more of these ... :) Pat
