Been working on the quilt in bits and pieces, but hit a snag.
Remember this photo from the end of this post?
While I had use of the open expanse in the basement of my parents’ place in December, I laid out all the squares in a pleasingly “random” fashion. Not too many oranges in one spot, or too many browns. Made sure same fabrics weren’t too close to each other. So, appearing random, but not really random. Then carefully put them in labeled, pinned-together stacks in the order they needed to be sewn on.
A while ago, little Lu got found my stacks. And started pulling out the pins keeping these stacks labeled and in order. I thought I’d caught her early enough to minimize the damage. I thought I’d figured out which stack was which. And which lonely squares went in which stack.
And the next two rows I sewed on worked out just fine.
But when getting ready to quilt the latest row this week, I found this:
A medium square of monkeys right next to a large square of the same? How did that happen? And farther down the row, the same thing, except with one of the tan fabrics. And a dark green medium squares right on top of another dark green large square – no contrast at all.
Little Lu, what did you do?!?
And now I’m out of time. (Heidi has no school today, so we’re heading on a merry little adventure very soon.) So will have to continue this tomorrow.
[Insert melodramatic announcer man’s voice here].
What happened next?
What did Karin do?
And where did the monkeys go?
Tune in next time…
Maybe there will be a real “update” then… : )
