The ending to the journey

I love this block – it’s not square for a change (but, I found that you really have to pay attention to the instructions when putting together the sub-blocks when they are not square.

 

So I figured out, almost too late that the key to putting this top together is to pay attention to instructions and most of all direction of blocks.

There blocks were 5″  x 8″, the directions tell you to sew them in 5 rows, 8 blocks long. Can you guess which way I did it?   Yep, I ended up with a top that was about 24″ wide and 64″: long – really?! So out came the ripper, what a mess I had everywhere.

But all in all, it turned out so nice, larger than I expected, but it really came together nicely, once I paid attention.

I did make a few notes in my magazine/book to help with this pattern, but the biggest thing I figured out, and I figured it out in the beginning is that putting the half “X” blocks together like this (below) made a huge difference on how everything fit together. And, I’m pretty proud of this block – it’s darn near perfect!
