Measure Twice, Cut Once


I have the lattice for the lotto blocks all cut out now that the replacement fabric has arrived. Seems I, in my infinite wisdom, managed to cut the WOF pieces 9 inches instead of 9 1/2. Brilliant! Luckily, I was able to order an additional 2/3 yard online and was a bit more careful with the second go-round.

I have been embroidering on the redwork Quilter's Blessings so generously shared with everyone by Bea at Capricorn Quilts- BOM. Thanks Bea!

Here's a shot of my design wall with the Pepper Cory blocks to date, Bea's redwork, my lotto blocks and some paper pieced (from EQ6) letters.

I have a few redwork blocks prepared and the skeleton applique ready to go because on Tuesday morning we are flying to Hawaii! I doubt if I'll be blogging again before we leave, so have a nice week and I'll see you later.

Measure twice---cut once! Yep! Been there, done that. On a redwork quilt (me too!) Only in my case it was squaring up the completed blocks! 4 of them had to be redone. Upset does not even cover it! Yours are looking wonderful! Can't wait to see that skeleton---you just keep giving us teasing peeks! (grin) Have fun in Hawaii---it's got to be cooler there I hope.

Oh you crack me up with your "brilliant" comment. I've experienced that special feeling that goes with a miscut.

Love seeing your design wall, too. Thanks for sharing.

Gosh, enjoy Hawaii. What a treat.

I love the lotto blocks - one of these days I'm going to make a sampler quilt of some type.

BTW, I love the profile photo with the wine - I'm holding a glass of red in my photo too and since it's almost 6PM, it must be happy hour!
