Remember those blocks I was afraid to try to piece together?
Silly me. They were a breeze. Every single one went together like a dream.
I was chain piecing like a pro. Angela Walters would have been proud.
Ta dah....all done with no drama. Unheard of around here but.....
...when I went to sew the sashing on something was nagging at me.
Something just wasn't feeling right.
Then it hit me. Now that I could see it come together, the thing is HUGE. My stand only holds a 12 inch mini. What on earth?
Oh, yeah. I didn't look at the details when I bought the quilt I saw the word Mini and thought it was all good.
It wasn't. After a bit of a temper tantrum I realized that I needed a matching table runner for the buffet anyway so these blocks would not go to waste. I did some figuring and decided to try a trial run of a smaller version. I took a quarter inch off of all the pieces to see what would happen.
It's a bit smaller. The new model block is 6 inches without the sashing which I can cut down to a tiny fraction. It might work. We shall see.
