Tonight I watched the Vikings-Dallas football game on TV. I like to sew while watching football, so I made a couple of blocks that were posted at Friday Block Party. The first one went swimmingly, but the second one does not much resemble the original pattern.
First I goofed and made a couple of pieces that weren't even part of the pattern. Then when I made the correct pattern pieces, I neglected to notice which pieces of fabric were to be included in the pieces. So they didn't look much like they were supposed to. I ended up assembling the block using the invented parts. It looks fine, but who would have dreamed I would come up with this block when seeing the original pattern?!
