Block #9 - Ann

I started this block way back in May. I had all but two of the outer sawteeth sections attachedd, when I trimmed off the orange on the seam line instead of 1/4" away. Rats! I had to take off and remake two orange borders and two sawteeth sections, and then put it all back together again. During that time I also had to make a baby quilt and finish a couple others. And I've still got two more baby quilts to finish so Nearly Insane progress will continue to be slow.

Ann, your block looks entirely wonderful! I'm so glad you've been able to share a block with us with your busy schedule. The fabrics are just wonderful.
Be sure to have a great week

I can just imagine your frustation! The block looks great - I love the border fabrics.

I've made similar cutting errors on my projects, too, and I know how frustrating that is! Your fabrics and colors are great.
