I ran out of fabric ... because I didn’t quite know my plan with my original purchase until I ‘got there.’ Then, I expected a week or more delay while my written request to the out-of-town fabric shop was processed. Was I surprised when I received my order in 3 days! So, back to work tomorrow with a wide border, then ... I don’t know what after that..
The border has taken me some time. The triangles are made from the trimmings of the pseudo flying geese. Note the center spacer in each border. I had to do some fiddling where they meet in the middle. I’ve learned to start at the ends, and work towards the middle. If I had figured more precisely with the first narrow green strip, I wouldn’t have run into that problem, but ... do you ever enjoy boxing yourself into a corner and then enjoy solving the problem?
Now, even though I’ve been quilting many years, those spacers threw me. It WAS early in the AM, and no kidding, I messed up 5-6 times before I did it correctly. Something about lights being on, but nobody home? Some days are like that.
