This morning I decided to make the last two blocks from the Jelly Roll Quilt Along. But that was before I knew that this was not going to be my lucky day at the sewing table..... Before I had made the first seam the bobbin was empty ( I should of course have checked that before I started - but I didnt :o/), I started spooling and began to sew again, but then the thread was a mess. After a while I managed to clear it up, and started again. I almost finished, until I saw that one of the part were wrong - so I had to cut again... At last I finished the first block, and believe it or not it turned out really nice :o)
Så var det blokk nr 2, jeg var fremdeles ved godt mot og startet å kutte. Skulle lage noen 4'er-blokker før jeg satte sammen blokken, og det gikk greit. Etterpå la jeg delene på plass for å se at jeg hadde det jeg skulle før jeg begynte å sy sammen - klok av skade. Og det var sannelig greit jeg gjorde, for der hadde jeg kuttet en av kantene for kort, så da måtte jeg lage ny igjen. Så sydde jeg sammen og skulle beundre verket mitt, og - tro det eller ei - da hadde jeg greid å snu 4'er blokkene slik at de ikke var plassert slik de skulle. Herlighet - at det går an......Men jeg var fornøyd med resultatet likevel og gjorde ingenting med det!
So, on to block # 2, I was still happy and started cutting the fabrics. First of all I was going to make some 4 patches and that went smoothly. When I finished them I placed the parts together to see I had them all before I started sewing - yes, I did learn from the 1st block. And to my surprise (or not...) I had cut one of the borders too short, so I had to make a new one. So I did and after I started sewing again and finished without any interruptions! Proudly I was going to admire my work, but - believe it or not - I had managed to turn the 4 patches so they were not as they should be. Puuhhh..... But in spite of it all, I was quite satisfied with how it looked so I didnt do anything about it!
Denne quilt alongen er veldig artig, jeg gleder meg til hver gang det kommer mønster til en ny blokk. Vet ikke om det er fordi ingen blokker er like eller så er det fordi jeg liker stoffene så godt, mest sannsynlig en kombinasjon. Det er ihvertfall kjempegøy å sy blokkene og se hvordan de blir, gleder meg til den blir ferdig!
This quilt along is a really fun one, Im always anxious to see the next pattern. I dont know whether its because all blocks are different or if it is that I like the fabrics so much, probably a combination. Anyway its fun to make the blocks to see how they turn out, I really look forward to see the finished quilt!
