2/13/11- Things I Learned This Week

  1. Plastic bags keep the booze out.
  2. 9-Patch makes me happy.
  3. It’s ok to let go of a project that isn’t working.
  4. Conversely- if you hit a road block, re-think the way you are doing something and rework it if you have to.

The Baby Quilt- Reboot

Yesterday I began to assemble the cut pieces of the Baby Quilt and it was not working.  I was having to go back and restitch parts of it.  Major frustration.  Despite the fact that I had put so much work into it, it was time to say good-bye to my original plan and to move forward.  I cut the remaining jelly roll strips into 2.5″ squares and am making a simple 4-patch pattern.  It will be smaller than originally intended, but at least it won’t be a pain!
