At the beginning of this year, I set a goal to complete twelve sewing projects this year. The other part of this goal was to not go out and purchase anything new, just use patterns and fabric that I already have at home.
It is a little embarrassing how much fabric I have purchased over the years. And how many unfinished projects I have…
Like this one…
Yes, I started this quilt in 2003. My daughter was three years old and I was hoping to make a quilt for her.
Fast forward to 2019, I guess it is time to finish this project!
Originally, I decided to make nine of these quilt blocks to make a larger size quilt.
Over the last couple of weeks, I cut out more squares, sewed pieces together, and eventually finished all nine squares.
Then I searched through my fabric stash and found a darker purple to use for the sashing…
Things were coming together quite nicely.
But then, I just wasn’t happy with how large the quilt was going to end up. So…
…out came the seam ripper.
Rather than making one larger quilt, I decided to change things up and make two smaller quilts.
I still have a bit of work to finish up both of the quilt tops, but I am happy I decided to go this route rather than one larger quilt.
So, my quilting friends, have you ever changed things up like this mid-project?
