No, I am not taking a trip by plane, train or automobile….I am on my quilting journey.
The journey involves the building of 8 inch blocks and doing the “TANGO” with them. The Scrap Dance Tango that is!
A few days ago I posted my progress ( Scrap Dance Tango and other fun ) , and yesterday I had a chance to join another 3 sections of blocks and took another photo. Yes, the pictures all are starting to look alike to me too. I promise not to bore you to much more with this project until I get at least 50 more blocks joined!
I very proudly brought the photo to my hubby’s attention, showing off what I had accomplished after my “afternoon nap”. Then I GASPED when I saw a block turned the wrong way! I did that section a few days ago! That mistake was glaring at me in the photo’s I took for the previous post, but I didn’t see it. Nope, not the first, second or third time I looked at it…. So, of course, I had to go back and look at the other photo’s and now it jumps out at me “BIG TIME” in every photo !! I circled it, since nobody else saw or mentioned the error in my last post!
Do you take pictures as you work through a project? More often, I see the mistake studying the photo. It seems to present the error more easily than while I am looking at the blocks while I have them on the wall, at the machine, at the ironing station. I like to study them on the computer screen. If you see an obvious error in somebody else’s work, do you tell them? I know that I would appreciate you mentioning to me if you see something along the journey!
Time for some un-sewing! Shouldn’t be too bad, but just a little annoying!
I’m sure this won’t be the only one I TWIST instead of TANGO. I think the error was made during basic block building, so; I am going to go over my blocks looking for that particular error and see if I can find any more blocks that I TWISTED those “kissing fish”.
Guess I will go “rip”…..

Your quilt is progressing nicely! I take photos along the way…to test color values, pattern correctness and fabric options. I often take a photo with my cell phone and text to a friend for a second pair of eyes looking to see if I missed anything and/or opinions!

Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment. I found 1 other 8″ block that had the kissing fish rotation wrong. It was an easy fix
