I spent yesterday working on Iowa Comfort Quilt #4. I originally thought this quilt would be called "Barcode". Its made from little scraps and has MANY different fabrics in it....truly a scrappy quilt.
Now its name could be "Messed it up Again" or "Never try another original (debbie) design" or just plain "PITA"!
Now I feel kinda bad about bad mouthing this quilt, after all it isn't the quilts fault. Its also not the quilts fault that I could not live with the original design.....that I felt it needed to be calmed down. So I decided to sash the blocks......now if I just would have sashed the right side and the bottom of the blocks instead of sashing the left side and the top of the blocks. ALL 72 Blocks. So here I am yesterday trying to think backward about how to make these blocks work without ripping out all the sashing. I now have 3 of the 9 rows put together on this quilt.....and I am stressing trying to keep it somewhat balanced in its scrappyness. Oh the things we put ourselves through! I'm going to work on the quilt again this afternoon. Bonnie Hunter I am not!
Maybe the name of this quilt will be " It is what it is".
Until my next post.......
