Winding Ways is Coming Together
I swear....I am being gaslighted and the perpetrator is me!! Why am I doing this to myself??
I was missing the center pieces for four of the Winding Ways blocks and I couldn't seem to find them. So, as I wrote yesterday, I had gone on a frantic search looking for some of the leftover brown fabric and after turning everything in my sewing studio upside down I found some. My sister brought the Go die over to my place so that I could cut more pieces. Calm down...everything was going to be okay.
In the meantime, I finished making all of the blocks but the four and when I counted them I had a total of 81 + 4 which = 85. I couldn't for the life of me think what kind of layout I would have designed with 85 blocks?? I was thinking that I needed to somehow make some more blocks but I knew the piece of brown fabric I had just wouldn't be enough. What was going on?? Even though it was months ago I was so sure that my sister and I had cut enough of everything. I had tried to keep everything together as a project even though that hunk of brown fabric did escape. ;)
I decided to lay out all of the blocks onto the floor and lo and behold the numbers worked out perfectly. When I counted the blocks I must have used the 1, 2, skip a few, 3, 4....counting technique. lol.
With the number of blocks situation settled, I was preparing to cut the brown center sections to replace the missing parts but when I looked at the die I saw that it was impossible for me to not have cut all of the pieces and they had to be somewhere in my sewing studio. I walked in my sewing studio ready to search again and those missing pieces were just sitting in a bin on my sewing table. Huh?
All is well that ends well and I know my niece is going to have a gorgeous quilt but I sure hope that all of this nonsense is behind me!!
