Several years ago, I decided it would be fun to try to make a quilt block. So I went to the fabric store, bought several batik fabrics, and made a block. Just one block. It was a disaster. I think I was trying to make an Ohio Star. After forcing the thing through my machine, I looked at it and thought, "This is not good." So I stashed it away and pretended it never happened.
Just last night I found the block in a file with receipts of quilts I had purchased. I have no idea why I put it there, but there it was. Still bad, after all these years, although I do like the colors. I suppose the front of the block isn't that terrible, but the real story is on the back of the block.
Oy vey! What a mess!! Now you all know why I was reluctant to start making quilts. It's kind of funny looking at it now. Not that I'd do any better at an Ohio Star block today, but at least I've learned enough to know not to try it again until I've learned a lot more!
