Notice anything wrong with exhibit a ? The U looks like a U, but what about the line underneath? Warning! Warning! Template trouble!!
Last night I was happily working on my single girl quilt. This pattern has no less than 31 templates. I traced all of my pieces and set it aside to cut out today. In the light of morning I noticed that something was not right. I traced a handful of templates upside down!! Luckily I noticed this before I cut my fabric, but still. Arggggh!
I went outside, got some fresh air, checked on the garden...
Deep breath. Ok, now I'm ready to try again.
How do I avoid this in the future? Either stop tracing templates at night while watching tv... or place a small dot in the top left of each template. When you lay your template down to trace if the dot is not on the left it's not the right way.
