Remember this post?
Well, things haven't worked out as I had hoped.
This is both an exercise in futility and a lesson in humility. How very poetic!
I had my strips cut and sewn into panels. All in the right order.
Then it was time to cut angled strips.
After happily zipping along, I discovered I had cut min on 60 degrees instead of 45 degrees.
Well, I have more fabric, I will just remake those mis-cut sets.
I start sewing the angled strips together and the points just will not meet.
Guess whose 1/4" seams were off? Yup, mine.
My mis-sewn and mis-cut strips.
No worries, these will make an awesome contemporary quilt!
Well, I know a couple of my classmates read this blog, as does my delightful teacher!
And I know I will not be happy with it if I just try to "make it work".
So, I recut my strips, and I am going to make new panels.
I said I would share the process on this project, so here I am keeping it real!
I am first checking my 1/4" seam and adjusting if necessary. And I am using my large quilters square with the well-marked 45 degree angle.
