Sometimes fast goes slow...

I got my skill builder block done today.

And I made HUGE progress (so I thought) on a charm pack quilt for my mom.

Until....I actually did the layout and then realized
*headdesk) that I apparently hadn't read the directions as well as I thought I did and pieced blocks together incorrectly. Um...more than 2/3 the time.
In fact, even taking into account the extra blocks I was supposed to have, I only had 12 blocks that worked.
Enter seam ripper. Over and over again.
*blarg*
The pieces are now reassembled...save for the pieces that will go on the back, because I just couldn't rip anymore.
Sometimes fast is slow...

On tap for Monday:
Row 4 of the Rockin Robin
Finishing the back and borders on the bright batik quilt.
Maybe even the quilt sammich if possible.
Quilting the bits of my Make it Modern swap. I am debating handquilting. I'm just not sure.
