I designed a wall hanging in EQ6 to be hung in my bathroom for the Holidays. I was all excited. It was applique blocks with a pieced block border.
I had the center blocks appliqued and started on the borders.
I had all of the pieces cut out and then let it sit on my sewing table for a couple of weeks while completing other projects. When I went back to finish it today, I couldn't find the EQ design. I don't know what happened to it. I left it pulled up on my computer for days so I guess when I finally closed it out, I didn't save it. I went ahead and pieced the borders from the rotary cutting directions that I had printed out.
Now . . .
Have you ever had one of those days when you used your seam ripper more than you used your machine. Well, that was me. I sewed and ripped, sewed and ripped, and sewed and ripped. Ridiculous becuase it wall all easy squares and rectangles. Then I finally got them put together and it was toooooo short on the sides. And, I had used all of the border fabrics.
So, I decided to take off the end borders, which did fit, and just quilt it as it was.
What a sewing day! One I hope I don't repeat in a long time. Sometimes I think I am beginning to show my age. Not fun!!!! Almost 50 is not old, is it?
It looks kind of plain now so as I look at it throughout the holidays, I may decided to cut off the binding and add another 1 1/2 or 2 inch border. Or I may just leave it as it is.
Maybe it was meant to be. If I would have added the borders that I had created, I think it would have swallowed up the quilt rack and wall.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
