Block Swap

Ever had one of those days when nothing works out right. Yesterday was one of mine. I wanted to make a special block for my January partner so I picked out this pattern. I spent hours trying to get it perfect - I ripped and sewed and ripped and sewed and still couldn't get it to work out right.  The picture doesn't look bad but it won't lay flat

It won - I gave up and made this one instead.

Then I made this one for my February partner, She wanted a Scrappy Trip Around the World. I don't think this is quite right
I will get them in the mail today and be caught up for a few days til I get March's partner

Wow....that first one looks quite challenging. I do like what you chose in the end.

I hate it when a block is such a brat!

I really like the first one but the second looks good too. The quilt top looks good too.

You might be able to "tame" your unruly block. You could be surprised how a rebellious block and look once it has been tamed by quilting. =) It's sooo pretty, I'd hate to see it thrown out =(
