Jelly Roll Quilt Along Block 6

It was one of those days where I was preoccupied with something else.  I shouldn't have tried doing a simple block because it wasn't meant to be simple for me.  Have you ever had one of those days?  Where you manage to screw up the simplest of tasks?  Three times I screwed this block up.  I ended up fixing it twice and third time, I improvised.  Good times.  I do love the colors though. 

Is anyone else worrying they might run out of fabric?

Sorry you had to redo your block, but it looks great! I love to improvise! LOL And I hadn't even thought about running out of fabric. Do you think we might? I guess my only concern is getting down to the last block or two and not having what I want to make it look right.

I had the same challenge with one of the previous blocks, and it was one of the simplest ones at that! I thought about "running out of fabric" too but I think I will be ok. I know I will have to improvise with the color scheme, though. There are only 6 blocks left so I am certain I can whip them up with what I have left but again they may not be color co-ordinated.

I'm worried about running out of certain colours in the roll but not fabric all together.
I had to do some unsewing with this one too..I think when it's an easy block we don't pay as much attention.

Cute! I've had the same thoughts. I've been trying to use the strips that I have used yet before going back into those already in blocks. But my color choices are running slim.

I know what you mean--some times the simple blocks become the hard blocks and the hard looking blocks are the easy ones---go figure!!! Do not feel alone on this block--several of us messed it up and had to finish it off our own way!!!!
Looks great!

Your block is wonderful...I had the same problem with a previous block...it was so easy and I had to take it out 3 times. My friend and I were just talking about running out of fabric last night. Oh I hope not.

Great,I like your colours,and so you managed at last then??
I am a specialist in redoing!! But in the end I usually like things. Soon starting on that block 6,but a couple of days left before the date :-)
