    Lemonade out of Whoopsie

    Yesterday was a ut oh day. After realizing my first slice of my layer cake was 2.5" too wide, I had to drop my original plan to make the Building Blocks quilt.

    So, I used half the stack of 5x 10 strips and cut 4" off the short end, mixed them up and sewed them back on. Then moved on the the second stack of strips and cut 2.5" off, mixed them up and sewed them back on. I sewed the strips back together putting the smaller pieces on opposite sides.

    I laid them out last night, but since it was dark, I couldn't get a real feel for what was going on. The lighting in the living room area, isn't the greatest. If I'd turned on the floor lamps, it probably would have been easier. I laid them out again this morning, did a lot of rearranging.

    It needs a good pressing, but it's together!

                  Katrina, you have just designed a beautiful quilt! Maybe you should write up the directions and copyright them by mailing a copy to yourself in a postmarked envelope. Leave this envelope sealed until the day you have to prove in court that this pattern is YOURS! Then see if you can get a contract with Missouri Star to sell on their website!

                  Did I mention that I LOVE what you just created? I do, I do, I do!

                        Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                            New patterns are found due to mistake. A great example of this is the Disappearing Hourglass. It came to because someone making the Disappearing Pinwheel made a mistake. It looks great
