So, a few months ago, Sharon and I decided we were going to make Maureen Cracknell's Herringbone quilt. The tutorial is here. In Sharon's sewing room we cut 2½ inch strips of our scraps for several get-together sessions. I cut my panels a little wider than Maureen's. I also, only intended to make 6 panels instead of eight. Then, we began to sew. The strips are supposed sewn onto a panel of cotton batting at a 45° angle. Easy-peasy. The first couple of panels went well. Then, for some reason I began to find it difficult to maintain that angle. I ripped out and ripped out. Then, I set it aside.
Meantime, Sharon finished hers and her daughter-in-law claimed it. I brought mine home, unfinished. Yesterday I stitched the final panels. Looks great, doesn't it?
But, look at the far, upper right side. And, this close-up.
Oops! Totally put those strips on going in the WRONG direction. No matter how I turn them I have the same result. I'm going to make another panel. Do I replace a panel or add a panel? What to do? What to do?
