So, today I was going to show the progress I've made on the Confetti quilt, which I thought was about half-finished. Here it is:
|See the problem? Short rows with pieces missing!|
Okay, so this is what happens when you make a row or two and then come back the next day and make another row without checking the pattern. At least it's a very colorful picture with all those leaves outside. I think a cloudy day is perfect for getting the colors right. It's a little wrinkly and damp, but colorful!
So really, this mistake is not that bad. It could be worse! I did find enough scraps of most of the fabrics to make the pieces I missed:
I can strip those in to their rows pretty easily. Well, all except for the blue-green row. All I have left of that fabric is this:
Eeep! Not sure what I'll do there. I do have a couple of bags I haven't sorted out yet, so maybe there is another small piece in there somewhere. If not, this row may end up on the back, or maybe I'll just stick a couple other blue-green pieces into that row. It's a scrap quilt, right? How bad could it look?
And I do have a couple of rows still in progress:
I admit I wasn't paying attention with that row, either, but at least it isn't put together yet. In spite of my mistakes, I think it's going to be quite happy when I'm done with it!
Other than that, I've been cutting up the danged scraps. Feels like I've barely made a dent, but I think I might actually be one bag down very soon. Cut up, that is, not actually used! Don't ask how many are still left.
Hope you all are having a great week! The temperatures have dropped here, so it definitely feels like fall, which feels great. I fear that I really am a cold-weather person. Oh, dear.
