Nonnie’s Quilting Dreams

Quilting, rants and raves and I am sure I will talk to my grandson.

A 1/4 yard, a 1/4 yard… my kingdom for a 1/4 of a yard

Posted on January 9th, 2011
I have been working on my quilt and I am sure I am short less than a quarter of a yard of fabric of the dark gold fabric...... WAAAAA WAAAAA WAAAAAA...... I only have two blocks left to sew together then it will be time to put in the final sashing. NO matter how I have tried I did not have enough of the dark gold fabric ( EESCO MAYWOOD STUDIO 513 SHADOW PLAY in 100% cotton (NOT FLANNEL) s - 16 )

Because the NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION. I have redesign the quilt color placement because I still have a lot of the light gold fabric. I am making some of the connecting sashing using the lighter gold fabric.

I still have to piece some of the blocks but my long armer said she could camouflage the area with quilting. I already have the large blocks made and NO I am not going to un-sew the blocks to substitute the light gold in the already sewn blocks. No I am not going to applique the light gold over the dark gold. That too was suggested by one of my friends. It is what it is and I am patting myself on the back because I am making LEMONADE OUT OF LEMONS.
