Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Have you ever made a mistake that was so massively obvious, that you totally missed it until it was way too late and your only options were..start over or spend a day unpicking?
Well, today is my lucky day, I finally saw the mistake.
I've been working on this blue and white double wedding ring..of which I have made several in the past, so you'd think I'd have it down by now. WRONG!
I came downstairs today, all ready to put all the round blocks together, they were laid out beautifully in order on my cutting table, it should have been a case of just 1,2,3, and it's done.
You see, you have to leave spaces, spaces where the football pieces of the next block fit into the previous block and hence they make a winding row to which you add the next winding row. In my infinite wisdom, I forgot to leave all the spaces. I brilliantly sewed two footballs to each center and laid them out in a manner that anyone looking at them would believe was right...but in reality, there are many of the centers that actually should only have ONE football sewed to them, leaving the necessary spaces.
Now, I have a good 30+ footballs to remove. I knew this project was going along way too smoothly and I should have stayed in bed today.
