One of These Things Is Not Like The Others

“One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?”


When I was sewing these paper pieced blocks, I was just pulling fabric from a bag of scraps and didn’t realize until I had them finished that there is one that is odd man out. I haven’t decided if I’ll make another one or just leave the set like this and call them done.

The next step will be to turn them into coasters to set our coffee/tea cups on in the morning.


*Note:  The pattern can be found at Pieced by Number.

      The credit goes to Sandra’s expert teaching and to that great tip of hers about how to use pins to line up the pieces rather than holding the piece up to the light.
