It’s Week 6 of the RBD Block Challenge, and I feel very defeated at this point. This week’s block was the Windmill Block provided by Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter. After all those half square triangles last week, I was expecting this week to be easy since it too included HST. Cutting them out wasn’t the problem, assembling them the right way was apparently as when I posted my block on the Facebook group page, it was pointed out that I had a mistake. It wasn’t that the mistake was pointed out that bothered me as much as the way it was said. It almost made me want to give up completing the quilt, but in the end, I decided it was not worth letting someone who knows nothing about me get the best of me. Mistakes show we are not perfect and that is okay. I might leave it to use as a reminder that it’s okay to not be perfect at everything.
The Windmill Block features a soothing color palette of Oxford Blue, Dove, Canyon Rose, Bark, and Le Creme Confetti Cottons.
