|Having "fun" late at night!|
"This is quilting, we are not saving the world we are saving ourselves, so we might as well have a little fun with it."
Oh yah... I'm supposed to be having fun here!
So instead of agonizing over the pieces not fitting together, and doing endless math calculations to make things fit, I just decided to sew pieces together and hack off the ends! I made 5 rows, added some hunks to the ends, cut them all to be the same size, and sewed them together. Then I added a border from leftover pieces and ta-da...
I'm delighted to say that "Dots and Dashes" has finally become a quilt top!
|Dots and Dashes quilt top|
This quilt was started last June when I received some fabrics from Sarah for making a Hands2Help quilt. I combined those gifts with strips and 1.5" squares leftover from one of my favourite quilts called Starburst. I'm so happy these little bits found a quilt to be sewn into and can't wait to quilt this one now! Woohoo!
Linking up to One Monthly Goal June finishes.
