WHEN PROJECTS DON'T WORK--RETHINK IT!

Sometimes when projects don't work out it opens the door for a new project....let me explain....

Friday i made several blocks 1/4 inch different than each other trying to match up with the 9 patches i had and thought the pattern square in a square would work....well it finally did after making 4 different size  of those blocks...what to do with the ones that didn't work????...well today i made 2 snack mats and with the other two...i made 2 more and making a table topper to match  the other 2 and got them all to fit...will show picture when i finish....i have the topper to quilt yet and finish...

I wrote down the measurements for that square in square block that i am going to use....its an odd size and i know i wouldn't remember later...i will keep the bag with the 9 patches handy so i can refresh my memory when i have fabric scraps ready to make more of the sq. in sq....i need 70 of them so it will be awhile before that quilt is put together...

Well i guess my break time is over and i want to get back to quilting so i can finish that set so it will be ready for gift giving later.....and i am so glad that i could take some mistakes and create them into something really pretty....more later....
