CW Block 31: Empty Spools

Once again, looking at a photo of a newly completed block made me really look at the block.

Completed block...

Hmmm...  let's look at Becky Brown's "Empty Spools" block again...

Hmmm....  the stripes should be going the other way.   Since I already had 4 of the 6 pieces of this block cut out, I made another one.

Much better!


  1. Your second one looks indeed much better...;o)
    Greetings Roos

  2. I like both blocks-----they are just different. We are going to have to repeat some blocks, you could add the first one as one of the extras.

  3. The first one has a continuous line--I like that one too! Either block is going to be a great addition to this project-

  4. I never would have noticed that anything was "wrong" with the first block. : )
    But it has to please you, so you did the right thing!

  5. I wouldn't have noticed if you didn't point it out! I really had to look. Looks perfect now!!

  6. Wow. These are stunning. I love, love, love the green one. *karendianne. who thinks striped fabric is beautiful any which way.

  7. They're both nice blocks but I ascribe to the "galloping horse" theory!
    I bet your house is quiet this week. :(
    Take care and make sure you have some fun.

  8. I like them all!! But, I do see how changing up the stripe makes a neat secondary pattern. Pretty, pretty!!
