What would a Project Simplify quilt be without a little ooopsies, hmmm? I feel I have a reputation to uphold now. ;)
The top row here isn't lined up properly. (Does this picture make anyone else think of Tetris?)
Please note, this will NOT happen to you if you follow the directions in the book. This happened to me because I only cut full blocks (no partials) 'cause I didn't know how many I'd need.
No biggie. It usually only takes one screw up to remind me to be more careful. USUALLY, just one ... but not ALWAYS ... my graying hair isn't just for show ... it's Mother Nature's way of warning all innocent by-standers that my faculties just aren't what they used to be! (Guess I should apologize for messin' with all you unsuspecting victims by using hair color, eh?)
At least I caught this one before I finished the entire seam.
I could have avoided this problem by cutting off all the long bits along the quilt sides AFTER I laid out the quilt but BEFORE I sewed the rows together ...
... but I didn't have that stroke of genius until just now. (Sigh) Might as well blame my hair for that too.
