Wait- that isn't fair to 2 year old children. They're just discovering numbers. Well I was so proud of myself for getting ALL the pieces of this quilt cut out. This the cover quilt, Dazzling Stars, from the Dec/Jan 2012 issue of Quilt magazine. I'm using my Debbie Mumm fabrics for this one.
With ALL my squares and triangle cut and waiting for me I figured I would push fabric through the sewing machine in a blissful stupor for hours last night. But first I started arranging some of the blocks on my design wall and it took no time at all to realize I am woefully short of several units.
I still need to cut over 50 half square triangle units and more than 60 3" square units. And since I want this to be scrappy it means I need to go back through my stacks of fabric which I neatly fold and returned to their assigned positions in my Debbie Stash. Grrrrr.... now if I had left the fabrics in a heap on the floor I'll bet I wouldn't be short any pieces. The amounts I have left to cut bear no resemblance to what I needed. It isn't like I forgot to cut half or a quarter of what I needed, I'm just short these random amounts. And I counted as I cut and left myself little hash mark notes, so as far as I can tell it isn't that I can't add or subtract, I can't count!!
Oh well to cheer myself up I made a trip to Joanns and found these...
a new Denyse Schmidt line call Daisy Mae. I haven't seen them anywhere on the web or heard anything about this line. There were 16 bolts at my Joanns. I didn't get all of them because a couple didn't talk to me (they talk to you too, don't they?). But I did get 3 yards of that green on the left - love it!
Have a great weekend-
