go awry occasionally. I worked and worked and worked and worked to get the pattern pieces drafted just so. I stitched and stitched and stitched and pulled out some stitching and realized I’d goofed. I’ve figured out how to fix the goof but I goofed. When I drafted on of the pieces it’s just slightly too big…I have a solution and am trying to figure out how this will work without causing too many seams in places where I don’t want them.
Learned: when drafting pattern pieces go big to make sure they all fit the way they need to fit…meaning full scale with all of the pieces this gives a check to each piece to make sure it’s going to fit correctly.

Ahhh this reminds me of a couple of my favorite ‘quilt quotes’.
“The path of least resistance usually leads over a cliff.” I have proven this a couple times in quilting.
or the one I practice the most… almost with every quilt.
“There isn’t a border I can’t screw up” Yep that’s me – seems I aim for consistency with this one.
