Well, straight lines are harder than they look. Luckily, my mom sent me the plexiglass table the fits my machine arm so I should have better maneuvering of the quilt now. I think I might have to take some of these out, but that's okay.
I also sewed my strips together for the baby's quilt. And I thought I was being clever with my strips. Do you see my fatal error?
Oooooops. When I layed them out like this, I realized that meant I would have stripes of polka dots running down my quilt. Not exactly the scrappy unplanned image I had in mind.
Then I realized I could just take a strip off one end and sew it to the other side. This moved the dots from the middle to an end. Does that make sense? I did this for half of my strip sets. Crisis averted.
Then when I layed it out to get an idea how it's going to look, I saw this:
Much better. Don't you think?
