After a wonderful , but busy weekend, I headed down to the sewing room late yesterday. I decided to tackle this bin of 1930-40s scraps.
I had an idea in mind for these. I grabbed these dies and started cutting.
These scraps were leftovers from someone’s Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt and many pieces look like Swiss cheese.
So I spent a short forever pressing and cutting.
And then, it hit me. I was cutting pieces for the wrong quilt. I need 4” and 2” finished squares.
These could work, but throws the scale off completely. It is NOT what I wanted.
This totally took the wind from my sails.
I know, I can still use these and it is not time wasted, but it wasn’t what I wanted. For now, I’m putting this bin back in the closet.
Have a great day!
I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one who does that kind of thing. More and more frequently these days!
I was going to say the same thing. Here’s a thought, make 6″ 4-patches and 4″ 4-patches then put a border around the 4″ inchers to bring the up to size and then it’s play time on the design wall.
I HATE it when that sort of thing happens.
