Plans Gone AwryAugust 20, 2006
I have learned that when I don’t think a plan thru completely it will go awry. This is what happened with my current project Go Away Dark Night. I didn’t think it thru when I started making the star blocks. If I had thought it thru before hand, I might have realised that the stars in a rectangular block were not going to work in the sashed on-point setting like the book illustrations showed them. And I might have noticed that a half-star rectangle doesn’t fit into a triangle space… DUH!
Yesterday, at guild meeting I talked with the chairman of Storybook Quilts and we decided to start all over. The blocks that I already made will be sold at a silent auction to try and recoup some of the cost of the fabric. And it is back to the drawing table with Go Away Dark Night.
But this is one of the things that I love about quilting… the challenges.
