Design Wall 7/11/11

After making a bazillion geese, I decided the flock is as done as it's going to be. So I finished the blocks.  Laying them out wasn't making the top as big as I'd hoped. I've made enough geese to last a lifetime, and the blocks aren't big enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  What is the deal here?????  So I added sashing and corner posts.  There!  That should do it.  Argh!  

My right brain said I've made enough blocks, adding more stuff around the sides would make it bigger, and they would fit together perfectly.  Just sash every other block, and they will fit together just right.  NOT!!!  I think the left side of my brain had a seizure or something, because although it made perfect sense to me, it just didn't work out that way.  Oh, I know! says the right brain.  I'll just add sashing on two sides of the plain blocks, and alternate them with the others -- that will make them fit. Hahahahaaaaahaaaaaaa!  Anyone know how to do partial seams when putting blocks together? 
You can't really tell from the photo, I guess, but I have a mess on my hands.  You know the expression, "Back to the drawing board?"  Maybe I'll have some answers tomorrow.  Sigh.

I guess Judy's not blogging about her design floor today.  Otherwise, I'd send you to to see quilts that people are making that are coming together at the seams!!!!!!!!!!


  1. oh those blocks are really pretty! They don't look like a mess. Can't wait to see what you come up with for those beauties.

  2. I adore your blocks. The fabrics you have chosen are wonderful. This will be a stunning quilt.

  3. Lovely blocks. It is going to be beautiful. I can't see anything wrong. Is my brain not working????

  4. Lovely blocks. They'll come together. Sleep on it and the answer will come.
