My sewing plan went awry today! Has that ever happened to you?!
I planned one thing, did another, only to end up with something entirely different than expected! lol!
I was sewing up this staggered bricks that I first saw on LindaJ's blog. I had gotten fabric that I thought *went with* two different fabrics that would be the outer border. Then I decided it needed an inner border...black would do nicely, I thought. Well, I stuck this piece of black and white checkered fabric and wow! I really liked it. So~I thought~let's use the checkered fabric and I'll find some race cars in the cupboard. On went the checkered fabric...you guessed it! I must have used the race cars because I could NOT find any! ummm...the first two potential border fabric didn't look *right* with the checkered border so instead of rip...rip...rip...I found this other sailboat fabric. I had less than a yard so I needed to be creative with the cutting...then I cut it wrong! arggghhh.
Finished size for my Quilt Gone Awry: 46 x 64. Another *What WAS she thinking quilt* for me. :)
