Ben Franklin and I Still Can't


Block 19

......believe I did it again.  Several of the Ben Franklin Blocks last photo in the direction have looked separated like this.  It never occurred to me I wasn't suppose to sew them together, but leave them in 4 parts........Good Grief Charles Brown!!!
When will I learn to read directions.

To my regular followers this is no surprise.
Yes, right now I'm LOL at myself.

By now I'm an expert at using my seam ripper.  We all have our talents and that one is mine.

Oh, no! Funny :) I do that a lot - jumping ahead of the instructions and then finding out I have to undo or problem solve!

Your blocks are nice , I like your colors.

Oh you're suppose to read the directions, not just look at the pictures :) I read so slow, if I had to read all the directions, I'd never get anything done. Love your blocks and great fabric choices as usual.

Ah Billie, you are my comic relief!

That's what they invented those little gizmos for.

You're not the first of us to use a seam ripper, giggle...

wonderful blocks and great fabric choices!
Ripping is not my favorite part of quilting, but I'm really good at it too. lol

I wondered about that when I saw them in the Erik Homemade blog post, but since I'm just keeping it for the future, I decided I'd wait and see what the deal is. Your blocks look great, though!

Unsewing is one of my least favourite tasks ...

I spent the morning seam ripping! I feel your pain, oh and it was because I got way ahead of myself. . . not a pattern haha

LOL! You made me laugh!!! I have done something like that so many times. I get so mad at myself for not paying more attention to the directions. At least I know I am not alone :*)
