The Scrapapple Block -- A Funny But True Story!
Ok, so that is not the really funny bit, the funny bit is that the beginning part of the instructions says to make 120 copies of the paper pattern to make 120 blocks. They recommend doing this by TRACING the pattern and not to use a copying machine as copy machines have a tendency to alter the size!!! Yes, that is what it said! Ummm, I can tell you that if I ever decided to make this block 120 times that I would NOT trace it over and over just to torture myself. Would it really matter if the sizing was off a little if all the blocks were the same anyway??? Obviously, someone masochistic was writing this pattern.
I might make 12 to make a mini for myself, but not 120! I will use a copy machine.
