Those darn paper-pieced turtles have almost driven me to banging my head against the wall. After I finally got them all pieced, I started setting the blocks together, but wound up setting the first four turtles with their heads pointing into the center of the circle. Then the remaining two turtle blocks would NOT match up the way they were supposed to. So I had to rip them all apart and start over. What made this even worse is that the blocks were oversized to the setting blocks and had to have a corner trimmed off the blocks that went to the edges. And I had already trimmed two of them when I realized I'd made a mistake in the setting. So I had to rip one of the turtles apart and replace the tail end pieces. The latest fiasco is that my chose outer border fabric isn't long enough to do the side borders in one long strip, so it had to be pieced. And I very carefully measured and drew a stitching line and a cutting line--on the wrong side of the stitching line, so I've come up a half inch short on my border. I do, though have enough material left to correct that mistake, but if I make any more, I'm probably going to have to replace the entire outer border. And just a bit of irony; the program at the quilt guild meeting right after I finished getting the turtles all set together--can't you just guess?--a lesson on paper piecing!
