I remembered that I was going to group the "boats" by color and print, which I think looks really cool in mass. Somehow when I got to sewing, I only grouped by color. Still cool, but much more scattered and patchworky and less deliberate feeling. I was fond of the deliberate this time.
I'm going to keep going, but I might have to make two quilts now because the original idea is kind of a nag. Maybe nagging in a good way though.
Use what you sewed on the backing. I really like your original idea.ReplyDelete
Ugh, I know that sinking feeling well! Hate when that happens! I like the first pattern best, just saying.ReplyDelete
Hey, that's a great idea in the top comment. I agree with you and the others, the color and print grouping just has an extra element of cohesiveness that really makes it.ReplyDelete
Ugh, that's so frustrating when that happens. That being said, I think it looks good this way too, although I totally see what you're saying about your original plan.ReplyDelete
I hate it when this happens to me and I have to talk myself into liking the new version when I don't want to use the seam ripper. I like both of your set up and I see it as a positive "oops" because you get to make another quilt, use up more fabric so you can shop for more fabric. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you all! I set the oops blocks aside and spent yesterday figuring out a way to make the original plan work. You are right, it's just fabric and I can always use it for something else. It felt good to keep moving forward. : )ReplyDelete
