So....here are the first four of Cassidy's blocks sewn in a horizontal row....
Aren't they pretty???
Well, that looks pretty good, I'm thinking....(so without putting the next three
rows up on my wall) I mean, I could fudge the "leetle" bit of differences...ya know??
so, I sewed the rows WITHOUT placing them up on the wall .....(hmmmm)
Now, if you follow my blog, you know how upset I was (am) with those white strips being wonky, uneven and raveling..... (sigh!!)
and I stated that I would butt them up against the straight
edge of the 2.5" strips....right???
this is what it looks like now...
really, really pretty fabrics right??
BUT, there is a gremlin lurking .....
can you spot the problem????
Here and even more so.....
H E R E! Aaargh!
Nothing is matching--I saw on the Youtube MSQ video-- comments how if you sewed a strip on the left and bottom of all the squares
it would be easier to, well....to
match the seams....well, then again, maybe not....;(((((
Right now, only horizontal rows are sewn...two more to go. I am not a seam ripper-outer...just not!!
And there is just so much fudge-ability (this is a definite word in my quilting dictionary apparently! ;000)
sooo, I really am at an impasse here....
any suggestions--other than ripping out???
I was thinking maybe putting a 2.5" lavender strip in between rows (but no plain lavender in my stash!!)
so here I find myself:
"bewitched" by the video of MSQ,
"bothered" by wonky strips they recommended and i bought;
and "bewildered" as to how to F I X this....
Because I L O V E this fabric...and have none left either...
I remain your (very )humbled quilter
