Oh my - my retreat story. I just couldn't find a project to work on except my sea swept quilt. And I was closing in on finishing all the blocks I would need. But, I thought it would just take a couple of hours. Silly me, thinking I needed another project. Just as I finished sewing 388 triangles to 97 diamonds, and began to trim them, Someone asked me what I was making. So I showed her my snails trail blocks and how this was the sashing. And, Oh no, they were too small for the block. I had chosen the wrong size on the template. aack and phooey. It took a minute.... or two to decide this block was not going to defeat me.
|all for another quilt someday|
Luckily, I had used Kona snow for the background. I only had a 6 inch strip left. I ran to Joann fabrics and bought another 2 yards. And I cut the diamonds again in the bigger and hopefully right size.
