The One With A Quick Unpick

I just became the poster child for why you should always lay your quilts out before starting to sew them.

I had an idea that was brilliant in my head so I sewed all the blocks together and then laid them out to get the final placement.

Clue.

It didn’t work.

It looked nothing like it did in my head! So now I have to unpick (growl) all the blocks and LAY THEM OUT to see what will work. It was pure laziness on my part, I admit. I didn’t want to lay out 160 little blocks, so I made them into bigger blocks and now it’s biting me on the behind.

So take heed of my cautionary tale, and always lay your quilts out first!!
