Well! Today I'm in a much better mood, can you tell?
I cut a few more pieces for the Lozenge leader ender challenge and sewed two test blocks, although with this pattern you really don't need a test block. Although in this case I'm glad I did!
When I cut the little 2" squares for the corner HST I figured I'd use a combination of lights on one block and darks on the others... only it doesn't quite look right.
Took another look at what Bonnie cut and I discovered the difference: she was cutting blacks for the light blocks and neutrals for the dark blocks! W
When I studied the original quilt I realized the little corner pieces created a definite pattern that could make a difference in the finished quilt. So, back to the cutting board! I only cut a few of the 2" squares, so I'll pull my black scraps - and my neutral scraps - to cut the real ones.
These blocks are so ugly I don't want to use them in the quilt...
All isn't lost though - I"ll cut the ends into little flying geese and the middle will be a scrap!
Meanwhile I'm going to have a great day.... I notice my neighbor 4 doors down hasn't cleaned off her car, I'll call her to make sure she's okay - shoot I'll even clean it off for her! Sew forth and sew on til later!
