Yesterday, after coming home from work, I could hardly wait to sit down and really enjoy my new space with my favorite music playing and full tea cup on the side. So I pulled one of the old WIP projects that I planned to finish. I guess that was not supposed to happen. I did it all, music and tea and motivation, but everything that I possibly could do wrong, I did wrong. I had one of those evenings.
First, I cut the fabric in the wrong direction. They are supposed to be waves on the ocean. Yeah, wrong direction.
After all new stripes cut, I sew them all (because of the chain sewing) the wrong side on. Oh, how I hate seam ripping...
After resewing them with the right sides together, I found another mistake. I think these blocks just don't want to become a quilt top.
Can you see that mistake on this one? Check out my plan sketch for help...
So this is where I stopped and pulled a different project out.
I decided to pull down my big basket of scraps and look through to sort. What can go wrong with sorting?
I sorted super small pieces from larger scraps and all of the medium ones I cut into mostly one inch strips for this project. I joined in late, so I have a lot to catch up.
While sorting, I made a nice little pile of pink and orangish strips for Project Improv. I joined in late for that one as well, so I need to send my blocks in still.
So I started on those.
The first one I did is not my favorite, it would be probably because I started on it last night and I trimmed it weird, but this second one I really like.( I am considering the whole quilt out of these.) Jacquie, I am sending both in, see if you could use them.
Now I am off to finish my Boat quilt from last night. Wish me luck :) !
P.S: Thanks to Rose for Sisterhood award I received from her. Check out her blog, she makes some great garments for herself.
