Grandmother's Choice #10

Another week and another Grandmother's Choice block finished.  This block is week #10 and is called "Little Red Schoolhouse" and it should have been fairly easy to make.
But..... that wasn't the case for me this time.
I had a lot of senior moments and had to frog more than once.   Once I had the block finished I realized that I had printed the pattern as a mirror image.  The other day I was playing around with the properties on my printer and checked the mirror image on and played with a few printing projects....then forgot about it and left it on.
So along came the time to print this blocks paper-pieced pattern and I started right in with the sewing.
Things were going along just fine.....
Until I realized I had the windows upside down.  {so I warmed up the seam ripper}  Fixed the windows and resewed to the door.
But when I did that I sewed the *door* to the wrong side.  {seam ripper getting warmer}
Then I sewed the whole bottom section to the roof upside down.  {that blasted seam ripper was getting much to warm at this point}
My final seam resewn and this is what it's supposed to look like.   Well.... except it's backwards.
 But oh well ..... it is what it is and I'm leaving it this way.

This is what the pattern is supposed to look like. 

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda


  1. After all that work trying to get it done who would want to try again just to point it the other way? IIWII and that is finished! I like the fabrics.
