A flop is a flop is a flop.....

     Do you ever make something and it turns out to be a flop? That is how I feel about this block.


  I actually cut it incorrectly. I had intended the block to be ( working from the outside to the middle) brown floral, white floral, brown floral, red floral, cream background and then the center fussy cut red rose. IF I have enough fabric after all the blocks are made, I will remake this one! Yep! All 60 seams :)!

 So to make myself feel better I went ahead and made another block. This one I love :)!


I haven't used plaids much before, but I think I am loving plaids with florals and polka dots!
 So tell me, have you ever made a flop? Did you leave it or re-make it?
Happy or Happier Stitching yall!
