DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO!
This is my Scrappy Stars (gotta think of a better name!) , a class I took from Bonnie Kucera in May. I decided to do that chunky border and I'm pleased with it. I started sewing all those chunks together, and hadn't decided on an inner border yet. Then my brain stopped working and I thought, "Hey, self, why not just sew an inner border to the chunky border in one long piece, saving yourself from doing the inner border 4 separate times, and then the outer border 4 separate times." This is a classic example of my too-frequently-occurring lack of thinking, because you get something like what you see in the lower left of the photo, 4 separate times! This is my "can't see the forest for the trees" - there is something about getting all gung-ho, forging ahead without thinking, and loosing common sense. GRRrrrrrr. And I KNOW BETTER!!!!!! So, I'm working on fixing each corner (as in upper left), unsewing and resewing more carefully, with brain in gear.
