I spent the weekend working on a sample block of Jack Attack. I am sure glad I did because I didn't follow the directions as closely as I should have. First, I used a directional print and didn't pay any attention to which direction it should be going, oh well. Then I made a few sewing mistakes and had a block that just didn't go anywhere except in the trash. And I had to re-sew a few seams but in the end I did get one nice big block done. I guess I should feel pretty good about getting it actually completed because I am feeling a bit sinus-y today and I am sure that affected all of my goofy decisions--LOL!
I plan on making a few more blocks soon, but I really need to sort through some stash to find fabrics that I think will work a little better. This block is destined to be a quilt for the kitties as they always need a quilt of their own and it will work out well on the back of my couch too.
