Well piecing began yesterday and after a short while I realized I had made a mistake in cutting! Wow – I tell you I measure two or three times before I cut I don’t know how I screwed up! All is well though, I was able to pull some fabric off the shelves to mix in with what I had and have enough pieces. I did make sure to cut all the mistake pieces into scrap sizes to put in the boxes and have been trying to keep up with that – I still have that big basket to work on but there you go – one day.
I don’t have a name for this quilt at this point – it will come to me at some point while I am making it. I put the design wall up in the dinning area and I’m going back and forth from there to the sewing machine. So far I go to the yellow area on the top side – that is where I found a mistake and from there stopped sewing and got back to cutting! The rectangle piece is one of the ones that was wrong – a total of 9 that got messed up because I had stacked layers and cut wrong
This is what I have on the design wall so far – more to go of course. These really aren’t colors I normally work with so this is something new.
Something else out of the comfort zone – the bundle package of fabric that I won arrived yesterday– a lot darker than I thought they were!! I haven’t a clue right now what I will make with this – they are fat eights – 40 of them – would you say these are Civil War colors? Revolutionary War? These might look good in that Feathered Star pattern that I showed a couple days ago – hmm – will have to think on it for sure. I will get it bundled back up and put on the shelf for me to look at and think awhile.
While I was cooling off from being angry over my cutting mistake I picked up the applique and got a little stitching done – I always find it wise to leave a project I have trouble on for a cooling off period or sometimes more mistakes are made This is at the start of the 3rd border – moving right along!
I will get back to sewing maybe I can accomplish more today.
