Do as I say...

...and not as I do as the old saying goes.  ALWAYS check the settings on your print job when printing out templates.  I know this lesson but I  was using my little Samsung tablet to print from and I never checked the settings, just printed and started sewing.

When it came time to stitch my points onto the rest of the flowers... they were too small.  Insert my sad face here.  I  did scale down the width  but should have spent the time to  change the proportions of everything so it would all be in scale.. but I didn't. My flowers are still so cute but now I have to recalculate everything as the blocks are no longer square and won't easily fit into that nice layout from the magazine. 
 
AND NOW I SEE ONE MY MY LEAF SETS IS UPSIDE DOWN.
 
More Pam Problems. I  am not winning with this project. 
 
I won't let it get me down.  I still love my little flowers and will do something with them.  Maybe not right away. I don't know.
 
Hope your weekend gets off to a good start! xo

Awe..I wouldn't have noticed either issue had you not pointed them out. Still just as cute as can be. I feel your pain, I had a quilt top complete and ready for the frame this week when I realized I had one leaf upside down, well Mr. Podunk pointed it out. Even after he pointed it out I couldn't see it, blinded by love for the quilt I guess.

I actually quite like them, a happy mistake maybe. They will be sweet once made up to fit and to be honest I wouldn't change a thing that makes them unique.

That's why I love designs with 'floating' elements. Not so much pressure! But these sure are cute!

Not too flowers are alike in nature! Don't be too hard on yourself.

Oh sheesh, sounds like something I would do. Sometimes ya gotta go with the mistakes, otherwise it is Angry Seam Ripping.

Those flowers are adorable! And unless not being symmetrical is totally going to mess with the design, I think the leaves look just fine the way they are. An added interest! But yes, I do feel your frustration at them not fitting correctly now. Drat!

Well they are cute. I'm glad I'm not the only one that has #nannyproblems.
