The day started out great…I finished several chain blocks to set with my Fundamentals 30s sampler. I had bought some of solid fabric in “persimmon” colour to possible use for the Just Takes 2 quilt. As it turned out, I decided to use a red and I thought that this length of fabric would sit in my cupboard forever! Where or how would I make use of an orange solid? Well, it made a great setting block!
Then I went to start on the border triangles on Pick Up Sticks. I knew exactly what I was going to do. A curve up and down the triangle shape, and a curve across the bottom. Somehow though I ended up making a hook/swirl in the middle of that bottom curve, thought it was good, kept going for two border sides and then realized that was not such a good idea. If I had made the swirls bigger, maybe. But it really does look better without them. So I have a fair amount of unstitching to do, not fun at all.
