Stitched By Me

A place to share projects from my sewing room.

My Hand Dyes are Becoming a Quilt Top

In my most recent post,  I talked about my decision to cut into my hand dyes, and the making of my first block of a Scrappy Trip(s) Around the World quilt.

These 20 blocks went together pretty quickly.

This is the layout that I decided that I liked.

Time to sew the blocks together.

Oops! The bottom row is upside down and the borders have already been added. Darn!

When I was taking pictures of it yesterday, I thought something looked “different”, but it was not until I was reviewing the photos today that I noticed my error.

I thought about leaving it, but it would have bugged me.

Tonight, I picked the borders from the bottom row, and the bottom row from the rest of the quilt top.

I hope to get it put back together tomorrow.
