Revealing process isn’t a bad thing as long as the process goes well. Here is a red-cheeked post about how the process sometimes REALLY goes.
Remember this blue scrap?
I had big ideas of making a whole quilt (size unknown) of these, my new favorite block.
So, I cut it, getting ready to sew.
And I started sewing….
and realized that I had…
I don’t even know what I had done.
But, the end result was that nearly ALL my lovely blue scrap was cut into 2 1/2″ squares. NO 2 7/8″ squares to make Half Square Triangles with. No, not any.
Goodbye, All Hallows Blue Quilt.
But, what was I going to do with a LOT of 2 1/2″ squares. So, I did a little fiddling around and came up with this.
I called my Daughter in (she is 10), handed her the pile and asked what she would make with them.
At least it’s an idea.
So we are working on it together. I think there is enough to make a lap quilt size. We’ll see.
I have known “measure twice cut once” for a long time. Now I need to add “read twice” to the list of wisdom.
BTW: The quilt block comes from www.quilterscache.com It is a terrific site with hundreds (I am not exaggerating) of quilt blocks with really good instructions (provided you read them).
