Distracted

Hi everyone!  How are you today?  It is raining, raining, raining here, which is okay because there hasn't really been a lot of rain recently.  It makes things pretty gloomy, but it's fairly cheerful inside.  I bet if I made some brownies it would be even *more* cheerful.  That's a theory I may just have to test out.

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.

  3. I'm fairly certain that brownies increase the cheerful factor in any room, but you should probably test it. The more studies the better, right?

    I think you could put another green blue fabric in that row, especially since it would still be symmetric! Looking good.

  4. Ok.... I take back what I said earlier about the possibility of your running out of scraps. I don't think there is much of a chance of that happening. May I have a brownie please?
