Feb BOM Do-Over

While I was at the retreat earlier this month, I spent the first part of Friday doing my February Vice Versa BOM blocks.  I finished them up and promptly posted pictures of them, quite proud of myself that I finished them on the same day that the instructions were released.  When I blogged about them, Yanic from Family, Faith, Food & Fabric left a nice comment on my blog, and then asked why I didn’t do Block B in the layout per the instructions.  And at first I thought I did…I looked at my block, and I looked at the diagram of the block layout and I didn’t see it at first….then I totally got it.  Whoops!  It wasn’t my intention to alter the original layout.  I think in my minds-eye, how I laid it out was how it was supposed to be laid out.  But, I truly did want to stick with the layout of the block per the instructions, so today I spent a little time taking it apart and re-sewing it.  I didn’t mind it at all, and it’s the first sewing I’ve done in almost two weeks.

So, per the instructions, here’s my ‘new’ Block B:

Feb Block B Do-Over #viceversabom

Please do try to overlook the really annoying shadow…if only my sewing space had good natural light (at any time during the day…really, I’m not picky) I could get some decent pictures!

And thanks again to Yanic – I really do appreciate the heads-up!  I’m happy with the way this block turned out, too!

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    I love these vice versa blocks! Such a cool look. Can see how they could get a little tricky!

      I think if I would actually follow directions the first time I could do it….but I have a long-standing problem with following directions! 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by! I’ve been sending a ‘new-to-quilting’ friend of mine over to your blog for your tutorials – she loves them!

  3. Sorry you had to redo, but, they look great!!

  4. Kelly says:

    Totally love the colors and ya gotta love people lookin’ out for you! 🙂 I am just across the river in WI (formerly a MN gal, but the hubby refused to live in MN – so now I am a WI girl!) Will look forward to seeing the whole quilt!

      Thank you! And yes, thank goodness someone is looking out for me! I’ve seen others in the Flikr that were assembled the same way I did mine the first time and I struggle with asking if they did it on purpose or not! 🙂

  5. I really like this revised block! The first one you did was cool too but this one is for some reason more pleasing to the eye 🙂 I am not a pattern follower either but sometimes it just works haha

  6. This will be a bright and happy quilt.

  7. ugh- hate redos. BUT your blocks do look amazing!

    Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

    When I saw your blocks on Flickr, I was thrilled that someone thought outside the box for the reverse block. I loved your original but can understand why you changed it. I like the “new” version as well. 🙂

I want to hear from you...
