    I don't know if that's worse than thinking that has actually happened, make a new block, and then find the "missing" one tucked under another block....and PLEASE! don't ask me how I know this, okay? Anyway, sorry for your frustration!

    Oh my, did you look on the back of your dress! sometimes i swear they jump on us and take a ride. Hope you find it soon. make someone else help you look. four eyes are much better than two. then if no luck, quit looking and it may show up all by itself.

    Last time I did that, I made one more block and then found the missing block taped to the wall.

    Tack the extra one on the wall to remind yourself, count, count , count.

    If you did by chance make it, I bet you'll find it hidden underneath something... but not until you PP the other one!

    If you find the missing one after piecing another block, just make the extra block into a matching pillow/sham.

    Good that found the block. Hold on to the extra one and use it for another quilt.
