A Goldiblocks Story

Let me tell you a fairy tale about three Goldiblocks.
One was too big, one was too small and one was just right.

The first block was made per instructions from the net, oops a mistake:- too small!










For the second block I made a few calculations and oops a block that was too big!






So in desperation I made even more adjustments and made a third block and it was just right!




In amongst all of this happening Kerry B and myself,Kerry E, were having running conversations via email and having lots of chuckles. I ended up unpicking the too big block and re-sized it so it was the right size as well and posted those off to Kerry. The too small block will be saved and used somewhere else maybe in a scrap quilt. What fun it was!!!

I'm with Sue B, I love those fabrics you've used in the first one, although the others are lovely too!

Yes I agree but there wasn't enough left as I was using scraps for a trial it is always the way isn't it.
