It started out pleasant enough, clue 4 for unity mystery quilt, required a lot of cutting. I like to cut.
The quilt needed a lot of HSTs. I like chain piecing.
But, this is when it gets dicey. Apparently, everything needed trimmed. I don't like trimming, so, I didn't. I started making the blocks, nine patch style, and they looked fine, until, I trimmed the whole blocks. I started making the rows, and, I was losing 60 % of the points. Drat. I couldn't live with that. I decided to take all the blocks apart. I realized that the problem had to be back at the HSTs. So, I even took those apart. I pressed and saved 80 % of the pieces, and sewed them back together again.
Why did it take 3 weeks to make it the first time, and only 3 days to make it again? But, it is finished. While I was putting the last row on, I was sure it would be a wall hanging. But, after laying it out, it looks really nice, and, I want to do more.
So I will look at clue 5.
