It’s all I can say!!
I said I was going to put those squares to rest till September…… well wrong!!!
I saw a blog today, with a lovely quilt similar to the one I have been working.
And yes, I use numbers all day long, when I start in a quilt I don’t really use my calculator, wrong some would say.
As I was saying I saw this quilt today, and alarm bells started ringing…
There’s me, trying to insert extra rows, fancy rows, dreaming of colours, imagining things.Stop!!!
You have done quite a lot of squares already girl… how many beds are you trying to cover here??
Well so one gets home, and starts putting squares in my king size bed, I know I still have to allow to seams and all that, but….
But ….. you have in your bed at the moment 88 squares and you have done 120… oooppppsss
Just the 120 squares will be something like 55’ x 66’ and that’s without the borders
Forget about all those fancy ‘in between’ rows. Forget all that!!
Let’s keep it simple!!
Sew all the squares together and then …. and only then add a border… or two….
Why do we complicate sometimes?
Or really why do I complicate sometimes?
When it’s just so easy!!
It’s a busy quilt. True
I’m more of a sort of calm, soft, boring type of girl, but… I still love it
It’s different, and sometimes we have to change
By the way I am going I’ll soon have one for each day of the year lol
It’s my ‘ Simply Scrappy Quilt’ … think I just named it
Next one will be calmer….. soft … and not boring at all!!
