Design Wall Monday – Gone With The Wind

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!
