So don’t fall over in shock, but I managed to do a Dear Jane block today. In fact, I managed to do two!
I managed to totally muck up the centre. Who mucks up the centre? It’s the first seam you sew!
What’s worse is that I didn’t realise I’d mucked up the centre until the end of the block. And so it stays. Mucked up or not!
I paper pieced it, and apart from a little hiccup or two in the outer border, I think she lines up well enough. Apart from that quirky little centre.
Probably a do over. But I shall finish all my blocks before deciding that. Maybe I’ll be so sick of the jolly thing that it’ll stay in. Maybe it’ll be a testament to my applique skills how more improved I became.
Don’t know yet. This one is called Ever After. It’s supposed to be reverse appliqued but that version was even worse than this one. I do struggle with applique. I seem to be struggling a lot with my quilting. I think it’s a case of too much in my head, too much going on, too many projects started. What’s that saying, Jack of all trades, master of none? I need to STOP STARTING NEW STUFF. I’m actually depressed at the amount of new stuff I have going.
Do they do a reality show to help quilters who start too many new projects? There should be one.
Hopefully I’ll be able to paper piece the next block in Row A – I’ve only got three more blocks to do and then I’ll be able to say I’ve completed a whole row! Go me!
Hope your Friday/Saturday is a good one.
