Unsewing a bit -

The more I looked at this quilt -

The more I wasn’t happy with the top section - ;))

That center block doesn't lie flat -

And -

The skinny dark gray strips bother me - ;))

I remember not making strips of "full-sized" HST -

To separate the top three blocks -

Because they seemed to crowd the center block -

But I might have to re-think that -

Because the skinny strips don't look right either -

And those silly seams don't match - ;))

So I “unsewed” it -

And I’m going to try AGAIN -

I want/need to rethink those strips -

Or try to match those silly seams - ;))

But first I’m going to take a break -

From all of this applique -

Shift gears a little -

And do a bit of piecing - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Sometimes it's just better to sit and ponder a bit over some things. I have no doubt you will have the right solution at just the right time. ;o)

Thanks, Linda - some of my projects just take longer to "gel" than others - but when it all comes together - it is usually worth the wait. I hope this is one of those projects - ;))
