Marmalade Squares and Floribunda

 In between watching the sad Packer game today I managed to sew, iron, subcut and sew the rest of the Floribunda blocks.

 Eventually I had a box full of four patches and hst's waiting to become blocks!  I am quite happy with my progress on this one since there are eight or so blocks total.  23 are blocks and the rest will soon be!

I also spent some time tonight trying to make Marmalade Squares from Moda Bake Shop.  I love the look of this pattern but was VERY UNHAPPY with the directions.  The picture of the original quilt doesn't match the pictures or directions in the pattern (there is a note telling you assembly is different but not that the finished quilt will not look just like the picture).  In the end I just had to figure out how to make it work...

 Here is the top in the end.  Not exactly as lined up as I wanted, but the fact that it is together is a hell of an achievement if you ask me!  I am a direction follower and I need decent pictures and directions or I about lose my quilting mind!
**edit** Katie of Swim, Bike, Quilt contacted me to tell me she updated the pattern on Moda Bake Shop.  I am SEW glad it wasn't just me (because at times I thought it was!) and that it is fixed so I can make it again!  Thanks Katie--you rock!

I was curious so I went looking at the bake shop for the pattern. Sounds like there were some errors that have now been corrected on the website and the pdf download. Your's looks lovely.

I am so sorry there were errors in the pattern--I figured out what went wrong but I don't need to bore you with that. I have fixed them (too late for you I know) but wish I would have heard that there were problems sooner so this didn't happen to you and others. Again, my sincere apologies.
