First, I didn't pre-plan the fussy cut flowers. Nope, I just started cutting. They looked great---coming out identical---until I realized I wouldn't have enough fabric to cut all eight. Tracy understands and sends more fabric.
Second, I didn't remove the blocks (waiting fabric ala mistake one) from my sewing table so while I was sewing a tunic for myself I get too happy with the rotary cutter. You can just imagine. I sliced right through the 6.5 x 6.5 center square. Tracy understands and sends more fabric.
Third, I didn't ask Tracy to send a strip 6.5" wide and so cannot cut a 6.5 x 6.5 square with the second fabric. Doesn't this block realize that resistance is futile? It will be assimilated into this quilt! I piece fabric to make the 6.5 x 6.5 center square and I finish the second block.
Here's a closer look.
I still plan to insure and track the package I mail to Tracy. Just in case. Hopefully Tracy has it in her to understand once more as these blocks will reach her two weeks late.
