I’m showing you a couple of mountain mistakes I have made so that you can avoid them. I think I made them because I am grabbing minutes here and there instead of doing them thoughtfully. The above is how they should look. I have 4 of each side.
With these mountains, I failed to reverse two of them, so have 6 of the left side and 2 of the right side. They will still be used. I have a bit of extra fabric, so I will make corrected blocks.
And obviously in this mountain, the first cut was 1.5″ instead of 2″. Again, it is still usable, but not what I had in mind for this quilt. I’m glad I saw this error as soon as I made the first cut. The other blocks are cut correctly.
I am finding with this block, I need to lay the pieces out in the correct order before sewing them together in order to avoid ripping. It really is a very easy block, but one does need to think about the order of sewing.
