Here is Monday again! and that means DBM...time to assess what is taking priority this week. Have you got a project (or projects) needing attention, then come and join me by linking up with:
Baby G's Quilt
I was making great progress with this quilt top and then, oh dear!, it wasn't quite turning out the way I wanted.
I have all the square in a square blocks done and ready to join into units for the rows and I even have some units completed.
And then it dawned on me, I am not going to have NEARLY enough of the baby bird fabric to fill in the spaces.
Of course it doesn't help that I cut the first row of birds at the wrong measurement. Now what's that adage....'measure twice, cut once'...for me it should be 'measure ten, cut once'
Initially, I tried to alter the layout on the design board, which is actually a bath size towel!
But I can't deal with haphazard so thought it best to try and find some more birdies. A quick fb message yesterday to my favourite gal, Claudia, at Quiltessentials to see if I was in luck and she still had some left...Answer: Quite possible...will know for sure Monday am. Just goes to show...1/2m is not quite enough for stash building.
I don't think it will take long for her to send me the fabric so I will do as much as I can which will probably see a few rows completed.
Last minute update: I have just spoken to Claudia, and she is sending out my parcel containing an extra metre of these baby birds. *insert big sigh of relief here*
