hi

I had a bit of a snafu yesterday.
When I went to work on the prepp of the main fabric I found out that my ( and the shop owners ) calculations were of by yards.... Eck !

I have not enough fabric width wise to start prepping and drawing designs !

well that is officiell the first bump of manny on this road, But not a disaster. I will call the quilt shop and get more of the fabric.

SO what can i do in the meanwhile ? I can practice the designs !

It will give me an estimate on how time consuming and /or difficult level of the design will be to quilt
It will also give me a head start on which design is more difficult to make and what I like to sew and what I do not like to sew.

And what design look good next to each other.

So here are the first practice piece. Not so bad, even if I can see where I got sloppy because I pushed on sewing when I should have taken a break. It does not seem to show of when you stand away and look at it.

Your practice is amazing... but learning to listen to your body when you need to take a break is probably a valuable lesson, too.

All I can say is WOW!!! You are extremely talented. I hope you plan on finishing the practice piece because that is awesome. How do you come up with the design ideas? I'm not good at that part.
