Building Blocks Quilt Along: Block 2.3

Block 2.3 Wiggly Pasta

This is my last 9-patch block to finish Block 2 in Leah Day's Building Blocks Quilt Along. Circles were HARD so I was glad to have a pattern to work on that was a bit more forgiving. I LOVE Wiggly Pasta! I can totally see using this on another quilt.

I realized that despite checking when I printed all my patterns that my printouts were a little larger than they should have been. (Can I blame my wonky circles on that!?) So I had already marked the wiggles on one edge of this block in the slightly larger size. I let it go cause time is precious and I didn't want to erase my marks for the whole section. I erased the edge to make sure it hit the corner of the nine-patch and figured it would be fine. (I think that's unrelated to my last wiggle being wonky on three of the four sides of the border.) Here's my finished block.

This time Leah suggested that we not even mark the inner filler quilting lines, but I already had, so I just didn't stress at all about staying on the lines. You can say that the lines were just a suggestion. See:

To recap, here are the six blocks I have done so far. I'm looking forward to getting the next two sets of blocks pieced and catching up to the rest of the BBQA quilters.

    Fun! When I read the title and the initial blurb that was sent to me, I thought this was going to be a post about a sensory activity with noodles. A quilting pattern makes more sense for something you're really excited about. :)
