Gee, that was my yesterday. I am making an american sampler quilt for
my brother and I am finishing up the last few blocks. Nothing was
planned, I just started making blocks and sewing them on. Now that I am
almost done, I have to plan what block goes where and how large it needs
to be. I needed a 6 1/2" block. I'm still working on it. I made a 5",
a 7 1/2" and a 4 1/2" block yesterday evening. I would find the block I
wanted to make and then look at the wrong column for the cutting.
Luckly I can use these blocks on the last side that needs finishing up,
it was just so frustrating getting nothing sewn on last night!
