    You are a funny woman Nexxus. Tell your hubby when I get the time and if I can find that fabric again I'll get right on it.

Due to my fuzzy math skills, they came out to only 4 inches...what to do, what to do! I know. I'll make a little border on two sides of each and I will completely break the center one because now the 9-patch squares aren't all square. Next thing I know I am impersonating Eleanor Burns and tossing that center one right over my shoulder. Now what? Don't have enough scraps of the right color to make another 9 patch. Oh, but I have the bonus leftover HST from another block. YES!!!

    I give you....Contrary Ex Wife!

    Directions. Make 4 4 1/2 inch HST. Next, cut strips 1 3/4 inch by I dunno...20 inches? Yes, there is where my math went wonk. Guessing the strips should have been 2 inches, I digress. Make the 9-patch and trim to 4 inches if needed. Sew a 1 1/2 inch strip to the two corner sides and then trim it all down to equal 4 1/2 inches. Make the center windmill with 2 1/2 inch HST. Assemble as shown with the top left and bottom right nine-patch units color strip facing inward and opposing corners color strips facing outward.

    Gosh I hope that made some sense!

    Oh and here she has grown by 3 blocks.

    Made the Corn and Beans (upper left), Card Trick (upper center), and Contrary Ex Wife (center right). Not colors I would ever normally choose, but I like it!

    Here are my Balkan Puzzle and Bridal Path. I tried the Interwoven Puzzle but it turned out awful. I may try it again to see if I can do better.

    It's interesting how different your Balkan Puzzle is than mine. Yours looks like a spinning wheel.

    Tess, they look great. The Balkan puzzle looks different because Designs used 4 colors and not 3. I did the same with my Balkan Puzzle:


    Here is my Bridal path block...I am NOT happy with the green/purple fabric. Oh well I will have to hide it somewhere in there since I am the fabric miser here, cover your eyes....

    Looking great ladies. Got distracted waiting for blocks with my sewing ADHD and started the 4-patch x's and o's from the tutorial at Missouri Star. Wow is it colorful! Also went with white for the x's...I believe I have become a white convert. Provided our house holds out with this upcoming storm, I guess I will do the next 2 blocks on the list. Happy sewing!
