Do you suppose if I sit right here being annoyed with myself the problem over there on the table will fix itself?
No - I didn’t think so either…
Those of you who know me… or if you’ve read this record of my misadventures in quilting long enough you know that I have a mantra that goes… “I haven’t met a border I can’t screw up!”
And you know that I am nothing if not consistent.
I have no idea why I have more than one piece of black yardage… Yesterday I picked up this piece and tore the 3 yards lengthwise into 4 long strips to use as borders for the 4 Patch Stacked Posie I’m working on. Last night before quitting for the day I pressed them all so that I could put the borders on today – there was enough length to miter the corners – Yea!
Today after putting 2 opposite borders on I realized that the black was not right!??? That was when I found the yardage I needed over there with the other fabrics… you know - over there where ALL the fabrics for this project are sitting!!
So I now have 4 nice strips of black fabric approx. 10 1/2” by 108”… but I’ll have to find a use for them another time.
I wonder if this is the black fabric I thought I had for the Bouillabaisse project? NO… I don’t want to think about that… I do know that I need to quit moving fabric around this sewing room – oh and maybe get better lights… and maybe check and recheck when I’m using black…
I think tearing these new border strips out of the correct black fabric will be good for my psyche… such that it is…
