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 -


  1. 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)

    1. 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 - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
