A design wall for Monday that is going to need some reverse sewing

Here is this week's status of my Flurry quilt and the picture points out some problems.

First, I'm short a block. I had one sewn up but it didn't make me happy. I saw some new Christmas fabric at Joanns on Saturday but the line at the cutting table was 4 deep and I didn't have the patience to wait. I'll go back this week.

Second, as I was looking at the picture I thought "hmmm..this would look better if there was more background fabric beneath the packages" the pattern more closely, it clearly calls for an additional 2 1/2" strip under the packages - duhhh. So some reverse sewing is on the agenda.

I'm glad the next guild meeting is still a week away. I have time to fix this get the borders on and bring it to my longarm gal. Okay off to drive son to class!

Happy stitching-

  1. I love this, and I see one in my future!! I'm so glad you posted it. :)

  2. I know all about reverse sewing.....AND reverse cross stitching as well. Sounds like the frogs don't discriminate. Rip it, Rip it!

  3. Oh boy, I know all about reverse sewing too! Good luck!

  4. Oh, Carol, we who sew - rip! I think most of us are masters at the art of reverse sewing and, also, it keeps us humble. Darling pattern!

  5. Oh hon I am so sorry about the reverse sewing but it will be worth i! It is such a neat piece and I look forward to your progress.

  6. that's a great quilt-feel your unsewing pain-but at least you caught it before it was quilted.
    I feel the same way about JoAnn's sometimes it's just easier to go back another day. Also if there are 10 people at the cutting counter it should be a clue that soon they will all be in the checkout line ---hello call some more cashiers up! -well where did that come from I'm usually not snarky at all! :)

  7. Hopefully the unsewing won't be too painful. Love your use of a patterned background. This pattern is such fun. My version should be on it's way back from the quilters this week.

  8. That is such a fun, happy quilt. I love all the different fabrics in the packages.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
