Last weekend, I worked at my treadle, and, finished my shirt string piecing. I am working toward Bonnie Hunter's geese on a string quilt in her book string frenzy. After the blocks were finished, I went back to the book, and realized I had made a mistake. In one part, Bonnie says to cut phone book papers 7 1/4 inches. In a different part, she says to cut them diagonally. I didn't read that part, apparently.
I cut them after they were pieced, so all the geese won't have the strips going in one direction. I don't have a problem with wonky geese, I guess. That's better than a redo. I am putting this project away for a little bit, as I have other more pressing priorities.

How did I miss that Quiltville pattern? What a great idea! Have you chosen the wing and sashing fabric yet?ReplyDelete
Hey, those are going to make a neat scrap quilt! And, well, if you missed something in the directions about diagonal stuff, apparently a ton of other people did, too - judging by the groups of images that come up when I do a search on the quilt. :)ReplyDelete
Whoops! Frustrating. Wonky Geese or come up with another idea for those blocks. Either way is sure to be SEW cozy once quilted!ReplyDelete
Ugh! So frustrating. But I bet these will still end up in a beautiful quilt some day! Thanks for linking up!ReplyDelete
It’s a happy accident, I bet it will rock!ReplyDelete
