Where Flowers Bloom/ Second edit

Thank you Carla for hosting this hop.

Flowers can bloom in the strangest places.
For instance.

Ok right off the bat I have had to edit my hop day post.  I have now been bitten by the blogger bug.  UGH!
I will have to reply on my blog to all your much appreciated comments.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

I need to add Amy's BOM link, some have asked where it was.

On to the original post.

I decided to finish a couple of UFO blocks and design my own small quilt.
Well that didn't exactly happen.  But close. 
The blocks turned out pretty good and are from a BOM  I was in a couple of years ago.

This is the biggest mistake in the block below,  I did not have a pattern and just used a block I found on line  I can't believe I did notice.  It is almost 1/4 inch larger than the others.  Was suppose to be a 12 inch block, still haven't figured out what I did wrong.  You can see I tried to trim it.
and it is still to large and lost its points.

And as you can see the HST boarders is way off too.  Instead of trying to halve way fix it, I have decided to replace the block and and remake the  boarders.

When I rework this , I'll put a darker lavender binding on it.  I think it will be cute when finished.  So I'm going to take a break from it for a couple days and work on some Christmas projects.

I'm really into my plushies right now.  Trying to stay away from stress and deadlines.
And these keep me happily sewing in between quilts. I don't want to get out of the habit of finishing projects.

Don't forget to visit every one in today's hop. 

Hoping I put a smile on your face today.
Be sure to visit the others on this hop for your flower fix.
