Yes, size does matter to me! Especially when it comes to the size of my wine glass and quilt blocks! I had finished sewing the binding on the challenge 12" blocks and because size matters....I just happen to remeasure and guess what! Each block was 12 1/4"!!! WHAT!!!!
I was having a heck of a time on Sunday cutting the blocks to size. This was all due to my rotary cutters...and that is plural. I tried several that I had as well as taking apart my cutters with the zig zag blades and none of them would cut. The edges on the blocks were a mess. I finally reached a point and just stopped cutting. My first mistake. The 2nd was not measuring them again before I sewed the bindings on! Here are three of the blocks (the back of them!) with their binding on. I can't show the fronts until they are mailed out.
And here the buggers are with the bindings being removed! UGH! This took quite a bit of time because I had to remove the stitching on the block in addition to the stitches for binding.
Yes, this was a waste of time but I just couldn't mail them out with being the wrong size. UGH (again!)...oh well.
I did get all the bindings sew back on (after I measured the block correctly and cut it correctly!). And I even finished sewing the binding back on one of the blocks. So two more to go! Woo Hoo!
Tomorrow I pick up kids from school. I didn't see them last week so I'm looking forward to spending some time with them. Thursday I'm going to Frankenmuth with my bud, Joan. Should be a nice fall day! Friday is guild meeting and Saturday is Nick's football game! Busy life but a good life...no complaints. Now to go check the size of my wine glass!! Size does matter!!
