Tee hee! Isn't this just the cutest little block EVER?
She's 1-3/4". Unfinished.
I love this "quiltlet" version if Sweet Pea - 15" square. It just might be my favorite ...
... scalloped edge and all!
Here's the big version. Both were made with scraps from my unruly scrap bin.
I did have a little oopsies with this one, though.
Kay. You know how you need to clean your iron sometimes? (I use a lot of fusible batting & fusible interfacing so my iron gets gummed up regularly.)
But you never remember it's dirty until AFTER you've turned it on and it's hot. So you tell yourself you'll clean it when it cools down and you go ahead and use it ... 'cause, you know ... you hate waiting. And then forget to clean it later. Vicious cycle ensues and the iron gets dirtier and dirtier.
Yeah. That's what happened here. And I paid for it ... dearly. See the ugly black marks on the ribbon? They look worse in real life.
But I'm also a scrapbooker. And scrapbookers know "there are no mistakes, only opportunities for embellishing." Ladies, am I right?
Lucky me, this quilt includes a sweet little bow detail. And it just so happens to hide (most of) the stain.
Yay! (But if you're familiar with this pattern, just you never mind that the bow is supposed to be on the OTHER side. It took me a while to come to terms with this ... necessary modification.)
And check out the itty-bitty FMQ flowers!
Eeeep! :) AND I have a clean iron now too ... for a few days.
