Well, last week I told you all about the challenges I had just getting started with the MQG Riley Blake fabric challenge, and I was wondering if I was going to find a 3rd fabric blunder or not. Turns out, I sure did! 😉 It’s so obvious when I lay out the quilt top that even my cat, Puppy, can’t help but stare at the problem!
When I received the fabric order for the grey Cottage Wallpaper from Hawthorne Threads, I got right to work on finishing up the corner blocks and Y Seams for the quilt top. Everything went well until I got to the last Y Seam, and I realized something was seriously off with the last corner block.
I took some measurements and realized that the 18.5-inch square of the bird print must have been originally miscut to have lead to such a seriously wonky final corner block shape. Laughing at myself (did I really just cause this to happen because I think mistakes come in 3’s?!?!?), I scoured the internet for a store with yardage of both the grey bird and grey Cottage Wallpaper print and then set about sewing together as much of the quilt top as possible.
All in all, I am really pleased with how the design is coming together. I just need a bit more patience and yet another fabric order to arrive before I can finish piecing the top! I’m crossing my fingers that it all comes together this time so that I can meet the July
15th 31st submission deadline!
