One of these blocks is not like the other....!

Yesterday, Stephen reminded me that I had not blogged in quite some time. How can that be? Time really is relative! Thank you Einstein!

In the meantime, I've been plugging away at various projects; so I have nothing completed to show you at the present moment. Since I like to play games, I thought we could play one together.

Those of you young enough to remember Sesame Street may be familiar with Cookie Monster's game "One of these things is not like the other." I love Sesame Street. It wasn't around in my early youth, but since I haven't grown up yet... of course I'm familiar with the show! lol

Let's start!

Remember Coney Island, well there's a humility block in there. I didn't notice it until I was almost done with the machine quilting. And, I only noticed it because my quilting movement did not feel like the others. ;o)

If you leave a comment telling me which block is not like the others, I'll put your name in a draw for a prize.

I haven't decided the prize yet, but I will pick something nice. Hum....

Oh.... this is going to be fun!

Deadline for the draw is July 1, 2010. Good luck!

Thanks for playing with me. Have yourself a great week! Cheers!

Block 1.

Becky said...

Oops, block 1 has a point turned. I like the quilt, however. No need to point it out to anyone!

Betweens said...

that is funny...block 1 but still it is funny just think of it as a petal falling...

May Britt said...

LOL Block one has a funny little turn on one point. But why not. You just invented a new block:)

Hard to notice, but block 1 is different that the others.

I agree, hard to notice but block #1 is a little off. I like the down-turned petal though.

carol fun said...

Such pretty blocks but it appears that Block 1 has its own little quirkiness - it just adds to the the quilt's charm!

Heathir said...

Block number one is funny.

Would you have had to piece that triangle the other way for it to be "correct"?

Block #1 has dark HST turned wrong. You have to look real hard to notice it. I have seen quilts in magazines that have errors in the piecing. I still like it even with your "humility block".

Block 1 - but it took me awhile of looking to find it, so I say let's just keep it our little secret....

Number one! But don't rip it out or change it! It is just as wonderful as the rest!

Cardygirl said...

Block one...oh dear...we all do it one time or another...shows you are a busy, creative woman. leave it in...it enriches the quilt & put a note on the back for future quilters...or just let them ponder...why did she do that?

Sew Create It - Jane said...

Oh No it is block 1 with a twisted half square triangle...Just call it Amish Coney Island and it will be fine :o)

Elaine Adair said...

Block Number 1 had the turquoise lower triangle turned the wrong way. But it took me a while if that's any consolation. I didn't think about cheating to see what all the others said. 8-)))

sheddy said...

Number 1, but I had to look real hard!

Needled Mom said...

Hmmm...I wrote a really long comment and it disappeared. Must be summer solstice.

Even with block #1 a littl tweaked, it is a fabulous design and one of my favorite blocks. I did one last year all by hand as we took road trips.

Leigh said...

I think the ice cream in block number 1 is melting Carole, lol.
Hmmm, do I recognize the cone fabric in a couple of those block?
You quilt is lovely x

Christina D said...

Hi there, #1 is not like the other not like the others. Your quilt is beautiful.

Kathy in FL said...

It took me a while, but I found it: Block 1.

Joyce said...

Number one is not like the others. I feel like I am on Sesame Street! Lol.

Denise in PA said...

Oops- bottom row of block 1! Probably never would have noticed had you not pointed it out!

Annie said...

I do believe it is #1. I have lots of humility blocks - they kind of keep me grounded!

Richelle said...

One of my favorite segments of Sesame Street as a kid. Block #1.

Anonymous said...

Hi Carole, Number 1 is different. It has a piece turned different. Thanks Sandi

It is Block #1.However none of us are perfect. I have a log cabin baby quilt that has a block turned the wrong way and even the quilter didn't notice the boo boo.

It was hard to find - but block # 1 is a "very Little" off. Love the quilt.

Amy R said...

Wow, you really, really have o look closely to find it! Good eyes to whomever found it the first time!

Dee said...

Block one, but it does add character:)

Pam said...

Hi Carole -- well funny but it took a little while to figure it out but once I saw -- block #1.

Have a great week
Pam

sandra said...

Nr.1 is the one!

Angie said...

Wow - i had to look very closely to see the ice cream cone dripping in block one.

RoseMarie said...

#1! I was so proud of myself in figuring that out. There's 2 half-square triangles turned differently for the ends of the ice cream!

Wendy said...

It took a bit to find it but block 1 is not like the others....teehee. Now you have a wonderful memory of this quilt which is different then all the rest. Glad to see you are blogging, say "Thanks" to Stephen for me.

Laila said...

Hi.
Block 1 is not like the others.
Have a great week.
Hugs ;-)

Love the quilt...block 2 is my favorite. Sue

slrquilts said...

PS..Block 1 has a slight artistic interpretation.

Country Log Cabin Quilter said...

Block one is not like the others!

Mary said...

Block #1 has the corner turned the opposite way. Hard to figure so I wouldn't give it a second thought. The blocks are really pretty.

Block one is different, but it just brings more movement to your quilt! :o) Ase, Stavanger, Norway

Teresa said...

Block 1 - but they are all so pretty!

Sherry said...

Block #1 has a point turned the wrong way; however, if that was your design choice then #2 doesn't have any blue in it.

Thimbleanna said...

Yikes -- it's block 1 -- and I didn't even cheat LOL. I probably wouldn't have noticed though, if you didn't tell me!

Patricia said...

Number one. Lovely blocks.

Lizzie said...

Block 1 looks a little different. But you have to search to tell the difference. Beautiful quilt! Lizzie

Anonymous said...

Hi Carole ... Your #1 block is different ... but ... you have to look real hard to see it. It was nice to finally meet you last Monday. Thanks for your hospitality. Judy from Ontario

I had to look twice but found it...it's block #1 that is not like the others! I like the vintage look of your blocks and the humility block just adds more charm. Thanks for a chance to win a prize.

I didn't peek at the comments, and it took enlarging the photos and studying them before I found that blue triangle turned wrong in Block 1! Very pretty posies tho!

Red Geranium Cottage said...

I'm almost too late.But I say block 1. Still it's very pretty. lol

Quilter Kathy said...

How fun! I am way too late for the draw, but I really couldn't figure out which one was different! I had to look at the answers in the comments to find out...and of course, they are right!
