Does it ever take you five days to realize you didn't sew something right? Yeah. That's how long it took me to realize I'd reversed the direction of four of these blocks.
Luckily, this is just a test block and I realized it before I'd sewn together the entire quilt. I'm sure I would have noticed it eventually, as the quilt blocks aren't sewing together in the same way as this 20 x 20 sample block. But, still, you'd think I'd have noticed earlier!
I'm still working on the quilt. It's going a bit slower than I thought it would. I have the sewing for all the 4×4 blocks done and need to trim them up this weekend.
Sewing and blogging may slow down for the next few weeks. I went back to work yesterday and have a bunch of end-of-the-school-year things to do. I'm a bit stressed out by it, but trying to compartmentalize it as best I can.
I also found out yesterday, my first day back at work, that next year I'm teaching a 1/2 combo class. Ugh. I've taught kindergarten for the past three years and have become super comfortable with it. That has its pluses and minuses. I taught upper grades for 6 years, too. I'm worried about the 1/2 combo and was up until midnight last night thinking about it. As the time nears I'll figure it all out. I'm still processing it all though and my brain won't stop!
