At any rate, the problem came from sewing the very first two pieces incorrectly. I did it right 85 times, but on that last one, I switched two squares, causing THIS!! Bless you Joanna, you've got good eyes!!
The problem was by the time I posted that picture, I had the entire thing sewn together. YIKES!! I called my quilter for advice. Throw it away she said!! Not really, but it's a very hard fix. In the end, I was able to remove just two squares, turn them around and resew. Much harder than it sounds. The turning part was easy ... the sewing, not so much! It's still not exactly correct, but the colors are right.
I got it fixed, but it's a tad bit crooked. If you see another one Joanna, DON'T tell me! Hahaha Actually, I really appreciate her eyes because it would have been awful to have the quilter tell me!! To fix the crooked, she will just quilt a big flower over those blocks!!
Here it is now with borders sewn on. Gosh, it still makes my eyes hurt! You are getting sleepy ...... VERY .... sleepy!!!
Up close (which is what it looks like in person) it's not so bad, although I do see it needs a good ironing before the quilter starts to work.
I spent the rest of the day trying to clean up my patio. I've got furniture overload and something needs to give. These two chairs, plus two more and a coffee table, needed to be washed down, as they are going to a good home on the other side of town.
It's amazing just how much dirt is caked on. Try as I might to wash it with a hose, it took several hours of scrubbing, not to mention baby spider killing. The undersides were covered with black widow spider eggs. There will be about 400 less this year as I squashed everything I could find.
Now to load these up for transport. I'm hoping they all fit in the back of my truck. Next up .... another one of those techie things. I hate to admit I've been working on it for four days now. My outside garage lights are on a timer that went haywire. Seems they were on all day instead of at night. So far no luck reprogramming. I'll give it another shot today before heading off to the Magic Kingdom of Bingo. Yup .... it's Tuesday again!
