Yup, you read that right, I am just now posting week 37. In even more embarrassing news, this is the first Friday Block Party I have done in 7 months. Every week I faithfully print the pattern, put it in the file folder I have for FBP patterns & then the minutes tick away until I print the next week's pattern. All I can say is Thank You, Thank You, Thank you for keeping this site open even to deadbeats like me!
It recently dawned on me I could use the FBP block for a block swap I am in & kill two birds with one stone. I went back through the patterns to find one that me the dimension requirement & was (what I thought was) two color. Then I proceeded o under-cut the center block, etc. etc. I don't know what to say except there was nothing wrong with the directions, just my hurried interpretation.
Other than dimension (which is given by the swap-master), the only other guideline I had was a preference for more modern fabrics, such as Amy Butler, which this is & unusual color combos, which this is not (the white fabric, while not so dull as a solid is a very conventional white-on-white pin dot). Flipping the light versus dark was as brave as I could be.
Now that this 2 birds/1 stone thing has occurred to me, maybe a stand a better chance of getting caught up. or at least falling behind more slowly. I might even make this very block again, given similar instructions, as I really like the way it came out.
