New direction -

I "scrapped" the "test" blocks - 
For now - 
Maybe I'll play with them some other day - 
Then I dug out some scrap bags from the last few projects - 
One baggie was the scraps from my Floral Applique quilt - 

So I started to press and sort them - 

I didn't get very far - 

But I don't care - 
It's relaxing - 
And I don't have to match any seams - LOL - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Testing -

Is just that - 
Testing - 
For TWO things - 
1 - To see if I CAN -
and/or - 

2 - To see if I WANT TO - 
Make a new block - 
If I CAN - without a bunch of hassle - 
Then it's usually a matter of whether or not I WANT to - 
And - in this case - 
I CAN - but NOT without a bunch of hassle - 
So - 
I re-sewed the first four test blocks - 
And they all came out the correct size - 
But the pre-cuts are not cut accurately -
And I had trouble getting them to "measure up" - LOL - 
And - since I got that far - 
I did the next step on one block - 
And "snowballed" one corner - 
I am not a fan of cutting squares and drawing lines - 
So that part was a chore - 
And it didn't come out right the first time - 
So I had to re-do it - 

And - the chances of both  "snowballed" corners matching -
When I set two blocks together - 
Are probably slim to none - 
These pre-cuts are not the best for "precision" piecing - 
And I'm not in the mood to futz with each and every seam - 
Life is too short - LOL - 

So -
I un-sewed them all - 
Into pairs of strips - 
And will check some other patterns - 
To see if I can salvage what I have already cut - 

I have a couple of possible pattern "maybes" in mind - 

So we'll see where I go from here - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
