Well, Gone With the Wind is on my design wall.
All the blocks are done and I thought I was just put the blocks together and be ready to put the borders on. Unfortunately, it doesn’t want to fit together easily. In the second row, I have got three blocks together and the points on the sides look pretty good. I followed the pattern directions in making the snowball blocks (the ones with the circle appliqué in them) but they just don’t work. The pattern called for using a square, drawing a line and sewing them on. I think the squares were too large. I had to take each corner off, resew with a 1/8” seam and then adjust the seam allowance to get them to fit to the next block. I am not a happy camper with Scarlett and Rhett at this point.
Of course, this means that they are going to take a lot longer to put together than I had planned. I guess I will just pack them up and take them to retreat with me and force myself to finish it there. I had other sewing plans but this is needed for Shop Hop so it has to get done so I can quilt it. Wish me luck!
