Macybaby - great blocks and the colors are beautiful. What thoughtfulness to send along the extra for bindings. And I love how you carried her fabric choice to the end.
Givio -and all in the #1 group = SBG guilt is amazing. I only wish we could really see (and touch) each round. I am in awe of it all.
I got my back done and brought it over to the LA. It is the first time I am using her - but I have seen her work and it is good. She asked me what I wanted - All I could say === this is a round robin - treat it like you got the last round and do your thing!!

Thanks, girls.

Macybaby, I'm looking forward to seeing your finish! ...I think we have three more tops left to see.

I was on a roll and expected to get it all finished early this morning. I got all the blocks sewn and assembled them into rows and went to pin them to the quilt - and they were way too short!

I remeasured the quilt and it was the same, 66.5", and I measured the blocks and they were as expected, 6" across.

And then it dawned on me. When I was measuring, I was very glad the quilt was 66.5 as then I could use 6" square blocks. And for what ever reason, I got "10" stuck in my brain, even though it's obvious 66/6 equals 11 . . . but that would not have been too bad, would have been four short. But I was a lot more than that.

I had "10" stuck in my head, and then somehow I got the notion that 10 was corner to corner, so I was thinking I only needed 8 per row plus for corners, when I really needed 11 per row plus four corners. So I was 12 blocks short.

The sewing is no big deal, but the problem is that I figured yardage and made sure I had enough before starting, and I didn't have enough of the purple for more than one more block, and I didn't have any large enough scraps of Jaba's fabric for the large center squares. . . So I had to get creative.

I got it figured out and sewn, and am sewing the rows on now (and this time they fit!). The good/bad part is I bought extra of the two purchased fabrics so there was enough of those, but I had to cut two more 4" wide strips from the dark blue and now there isn't enough left for the binding.

Time to get back to sewing so I can get a picture of the finished top, and then get it packed up and ready to mail.

Here are the pictures. The one without the flash is on the dark side, and the one with the flash is a bit washed out. The true colors are in between.

Can you spot the "fix"? I put the three added blocks in the middle of each row. The purple fabric is the same color as the first one, but the pattern is different. Though it's cut small enough you have to look closely to see the difference.

And though I didn't have enough of Jaba's batik left to cut 12 larger squares, I did have enough to cut enough small squares put a four patch as the center and that kept the chain of batik going around the outside. Sure do love those hummingbirds!

Now it's bagged up and will be ready to ship off on Monday.

The “fix” looks great, Macybaby. Are you quilting and binding it for her too?

Macybaby, it's beautiful!! The 'fix' looks like it was meant to be there.
