These 16 patch blocks were made as 4 patches and then put together as a larger 4 patch. Most of these fabrics were from left over pieces of other quilts. When I have leftovers, often I take time here and there to cut them into usable sizes. Sometimes, I do leave larger pieces for applique. However
I make mistakes, especially when I am in a hurry. Last night was one of those times. I was in a hurry to get the block made and instead of cutting 2 7/8″ blocks for the triangles, I merrily went my way cutting 2.5″ blocks. Then I realized that was not going to work. Not to worry however, now I have many dark green blocks cut for the next time I need 2.5″ blocks. Mistakes happen and when they do, I just try to make the best of them.
Have a blessed Sabbath tomorrow. We will have company joining us for lunch.
