I had a brief moment of panic this weekend when I realized that I had mixed up my color substitutions from the very beginning. I thought I was so careful - I even made a point of crossing out Bonnie's colors in her instructions and writing in my own rather than working from memory. It would have worked had I actually written the right color down! I somehow confused the mauve and brown - I intended to use mauve for yellow and brown for orange but was wrong right out of the gate...I used mauve in my tri-recs pieces. Thankfully I didn't read all that closely and accidentally got my chevrons right. The mix-up did impact my pinwheels, but thankfully I had only sewn one together so far and I caught the mistake before cutting for step 4 so there wasn't much harm done. I am a little bummed that the quilt will now have twice as much pink in it as I intended, but better to live with that than to redo all those tri-recs blocks!
I managed to get 120 four patches sewn over the weekend.
Funny that we consider a step that involves sewing 1200 pieces of fabric
together to be "easy"! I am hoping to have time to finish the other
180 before Friday...and then to go back to steps 2 and 3. I'm looking forward to the reveal, but hope it doesn't come too soon. I have so much catching up to do!
Check out this week's Link-Up to see how everyone else is coming along on their CS projects. The colors are fabulous!
