A Change of Plans

Remember I said I wasn’t sure about the proportions of the churn dash quilt? Yeah….

I spent a lot of time with the seam ripper yesterday. But I just wouldn’t have been happy. I removed a row from one end, made two more blocks and added it to the side. Since I pieced my rows lengthwise to begin with, this ended up being more work than it sounds. Anyway, I had some triangle paper on hand and used that to make the two extra blocks I needed.

I had never used these before and they worked out quite well. The accuracy was spot on.

Now I can get back to borders so I can show a finished top on Friday.

Have a great day!

    I am in full support of following one’s instinct when it comes to ripping out and correcting a “problem”. It may be a lot of work, but it’s worth it in the end, to make it right. You’ll be glad you did! You have a good eye, Katy, and your instinct is spot on in regards to your quilts. I look forward to seeing the finished product.
