A funny thing happened on the way home from Sinta and Sherri's Schnibbles parade, I found out I was RIGHT ish!
When I blogged about my Hubbel/Hubble finish this summer, someone left a comment asking if I had noticed that my center hsts were turned the wrong way. WHAT!! I was on vacation and couldn't really do much research on the matter, but let me tell ya', I was bummed the rest of the day. "How did I make that mistake", I kept asking and asking myself over and over. I remembered being very careful when laying out my blocks and following the pattern diagram to the letter, or so I thought. By the time I got home from vacation I had moved on, kind of.
Not moved on enough to enter my Hubble/Hubbel in The Parade, or to post a picture of it once it was home from the quilter. But I decided I liked my Hubble/Hubbel, even if it was WRONG! Now I'm guessing at this point some of you are wondering why those turned hsts were bothering me, me the queen of "Lets Change a Pattern". Changes that are my idea are grand, changes that are an accident are not.
What I didn't know at the time but have since found out, this pattern is a twofer, buy one get another free! You can make the Hubble on the cover OR the Hubble in the pattern diagram. I think it's interesting that in the parade about half of us are pattern followers, and used the pattern diagram, and the other half looked at the pattern cover, probably didn't read single word of the pattern, and made that version.
Here's my Hubble using the pattern diagram.
Here's the cover.
It's the center hsts that are different.
Boy does it feel good to have that cleared up! Hey Sinta and Sherri, is it too late to make the parade?
