You know how you are sewing along and something just doesn’t feel right? But you ignore the feeling and keep on working!!! That is what happened to me this week.
I had been busy with work deadlines the past two weeks so hadn’t found much time to be progressing with my Color Wheel quilt, so I started trying to do 15 or 20 minutes each morning. One of those mornings I was working along and ended up having to take a couple of stitching lines out and irreparably tore the foundation paper so I added more paper to the back and kept on going.
But as I would sew off of the edge, I was having to sew over lots of edges that I hadn’t had to do before. I was excited to be getting something done so decided that it was okay and just kept going……WRONG!!!
So…..I finished up the blue side and was happy with how it looked…..
On Saturday I started working on the green side and, for some reason, had a look at the finished blue section. The first thing that I realized was that I had sewn the sections together in the wrong order which is why there isn’t a lot of definition between the colors.
Then I had another look at it and realized that the slant of the strips was not correct in one particular area…..
Gee I wish that I had listened to my inner voice!!!!
So, 1 hour later I had made the needed corrections and was ready to move forward with the green side.
It also looks so much better now because the colors actually flow from one color to another!!
The moral of this story……
….and LISTEN to yourself!!!!
