Feb Sew Sweet Block

I thought I had my Feb 2014 Sew Sweet Block finished but when I looked at my block compared to Clover and Violet's block, I realize I did something wrong.  So I will probably be making another block.
I looked at the pictures and directions on Clover and Violet.  I am not a newbie when it comes to log cabin basics.  I think I cut the strips out okay.
But mine isn't exactly like the sample.  Hmm.  Oh well.  It was fun to make with cute aqua and red fabric.  I'll make a new one and pay more attention.  I can always use this block in a new UFO sampler quilt when I get around to making a new one.  I love that Donna included me in her bee.  I had forgotten how fun a sewing bee is.  You can always sew along with us at home and keep your own blocks as we make them.  More is better.  Right?

It is very pretty. I think you only went wrong with your last 2 strips. The one at the top of the picture (red bows) should be strip 12 in the counter clockwise rotation and should only go past the red dot. Then the red with words on it (strip 13) finishes the block the entire length. If that makes sense ;-D

I think Rebecca is right. Also, the photo you show printed out is of some incomplete blocks...so maybe that is part of the trouble?

I was wondering if it would be okay to use a white with red flowers as one of my light colors, I'm glad you posted your block!

I love your block Nanette -- not sure what's wrong with it, but I sure do love the way you've arranged the pieces!
