So… I am making a quilt for publication. I have been provided with the MOST gorgeous fabric and am loving using it.
In a flash of genius I decided to make two versions of the quilt. I often take just one quilt block, then scale it up to be the whole quilt. I thought I could demonstrate this by making a small version of the whole quilt and very cleverly send both to the magazine.
I made both quilts at the same time. This was a strategic move as I know very well that I would never manage to find the focus to go back and do the small one later.
After completing the blocks for both quilts I put the small one together first.
I carried it back to the studio, crowing at my cleverness.
I laid it out on the table and marvelled at my own abilities.
Then… I saw it.
Do you see it?
That block is upside down. It’s blue where it should be green and green where it should be blue.
Luckily I have had a lot of experience at unpicking.
