No I've neither gotten confused about the block number I was on nor about the fabrics I was using. I figured since I'm making a sampler out of the Sunshine collection why not start with the weather vane block (while I can remember how to piece it!) I really like the way this turned out. 1 block down - 24 to go. This one will be set 7X7 with a simple framed square block as the alternate blocks using the white prints in the centers and the blue bubbles as the frame. Then the whole thing will have a narrow inner border of the blue bubbles, an outer border of the floral stripe and the yellow bubbles will be the binding. As planned it will finish at about 104" square. Plenty big enough for my king bed. And another one that will have to go out to be quilted!
I've been looking thru some of my books for block ideas. I'd kinda like the blocks to be a bit more difficult that what I usually do. So no 9-patches or churn dashes allowed. Maybe. I'm always subject to change my mind at the drop of a hat. LOL! But I'm enjoying the weather vane blocks so much done block by block that I think I'll enjoy trying some of the more difficult blocks for my sampler.
I really think one of the reasons I'm enjoying the one-at-a-time blocks is I get to see a finish for every block. Rather than doing zoom-zoom piecing where you have to do all the steps for all the blocks before you start putting them together. BORING.....And should I get bored with these I can always finish the quilt off at a smaller size just using the blocks I've completed. I know, sad to be considering that this would turn into a UFO. But I do know myself so well.
And never fear I haven't put away the other weather vane blocks. This was just a pause from working on them. And I might kinda alternate blocks for both quilts depending on my mood. We'll see.
