So last post, I talked about how I was frustrated because I wanted to work on my big blue and white WIP (work in progress) but couldn't find a few pieces. See the missing sets above?
To make a nice square quilt I was missing two sets of three blocks. My good friend Sue suggested that maybe I had never actually sewn those sets and would have to sew some more. But I knew I had finished every block for the quilt! So I searched my WIP pile. Then I searched my boxes of miscellaneous fabrics. Then I searched my scrap box. I was even contemplating searching my fabric stash. Grrrr. Then I looked through my old pictures to find one of my layout to convince Sue (and myself by this stage) that I had actually finished all the blocks.
Oops. It's not a square quilt. It's a rectangle and I had all the pieces in my hot little hand, I just couldn't see how to lay them out. Doh. Sorry Sue!
I'm off today to find some white on white print fabric to match for setting triangles.
And this pic is for Cathy from Cabbage Quilts who is also doing a paper pieced quilt with diamonds and squares, but a different layout. She wanted to see my layout and a picture says it better than words. Cathy's is a beautiful Kaffe Fasset pattern and she has the most delicious sense of colour. Go check her out.
