Blockheads Week 1

It's one of those times when I need you to view this as you are galloping by on a horse.



This block is rather deceptive.  It looks fairly easy until the construction begins.  The part that was hard was matching up all those points and corners.  ( I probably should re-do the one on the left.) While I was making this little block (6") I thought I'd use this one to learn on and then make another one.

Once I finished the block, I said; "Good enough!"

(I should  have fussy-cut the blackbirds in the middle)
Always second guessing myself. . . . . . .

Lately I usually feel like I am on a galloping horse, and totally out of control. It looks good to me. I haven't even tried it, yet!

Good enough indeed; it is lovely

I think it's fine. I suspect any little errors will not be visible once it it surrounded by other blocks and quilted. For me, it takes a huge error to jump out, and even then it can take a bit of studying for me to find them sometimes. It's often the quilts with the oddities that I prefer.

Looks good to me. I printed out the pattern and took it to the sewing room but have been busy prepping applique blocks. The block design does not look all that easy but I have seen several on Facebook that look very good.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with "good enough"!

Second guessing! how about third and fourth guessings! AARRGGHH! Your block is just fine-colors good, interesting pattern, lines straight! There is always foundation piecing as they used to do in the old days of quilting!

I've not made my first blockhead yet.... but I didn't think it looked like an easy one from any angle! I think yours is great! (And I may tackle mine tomorrow. Just need to decide if I'm going with a colorway or scrappy.)
BTW - there's a Humble Quilts blog Doll Quilt Swap listed today... I think I recall you said you might be interested next time No arm-twisting or anything :D

Happy Stitching!

I think it looks terrific. And it is miles ahead of mine since it is still sitting on the cutting table! Good job!
