I’ve got a finish. Finally.
I love houndstooth and I’d never seen a quilt done in this pattern. I also love Kona Cotton Solids, so I thought this is my next, just for fun personal challenge. Looks fun, right?
Looks easy enough, too. I can figure that out…. You’ve said it, you know you have.
Well, it wasn’t as easy as it appeared. Once I got the cutting part figured out, lots of cutting to do, the individual pieces were easy enough to put together. Easy Peasy.
As I was sitting there planning my quilting strategy was when I realized how spatially blind I am…….
The problem came into play when I went to lay out the pattern. The first chunk, the above section, no problem, then that must be about the time I figured out a short cut. See the problem???
Now the only short cut there is has to do with cutting out lots and lots of short rows of stitching……
Some wondered why I just wouldn’t leave it be and quilt it as it was. Well, it wouldn’t be a houndstooth, then where would I be? Sitting around drinking wine trying to figure out a clever name for a new pattern and that isn’t my strong point….. The clever naming, that is….
Seam ripping while drinking wine, I’m good at. Or I will be by the time this think is put back together in a herringbone pattern….
By the time this quilt is put back together, I’ll be at the expert level. On all things…
