Pretty cute fabrics, right? I decided to make a favorite pattern for a young girl, a Kaleidoscope. Easy, peasy, except ... I had forgotten the rules, suggestions of values, and just zoned in on these cute fabrics ... Normally, the circles that should appear when values are correctly chosen, and the circles appear automatically. hmmmm, not this time.
No circles? "No problem, the fabrics will carry it thru" was what I heard me saying to myself..
Then, during the night, SOMEONE !!! moved some of these rows around, and now I have similar fabrics together. Perhaps it was one of the garden gnomes that I move into the house when cold weather arrives? Ya think???
I have made over 200 quilts and have never run into this example of repeated poor planning. And I've even made 3 or 4 Kaleidoscope Quilts before, each one perfectly wonderful. Apparently my brain stopped working.
