this post from earlier this month. If you go back to see that post, check out how little of that blue calico remained for what I needed to do. I really had to be certain about how I used that last little bit.
The arrows in the photo above point out two problems that had to be solved in order to finish my flimsy. The purple arrow indicates that I had several spots that needed a triangle unit inserted. The pink arrow indicates too-small triangles that needed to be removed. All told, I suppose I had about 5 of each of these to correct.
Ugh. Let the surgery begin.
Above, you can see that the strips have been unsewed to a workable distance; the offending small triangle has been removed removed.
Using the small triangles, I pieced extensions onto them and re-cut larger triangles to fit the spaces. Fortunately, the little calico is a forgiving print; the seam lines barely show.
This whole process falls into the category of doing the grunt work of quilting. I really hate being bogged down by correcting mistakes like this. In this case, I knew that I really wanted to have this quilt top finished; I just love how it looks! So I was willing to do that tiresome grunt work in order to get my flimsy, at last. Yay!! I love it!
Here's another look at my finish, even though you saw it in yesterday's post. One never tires of looking at a newly finished quilty creation!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
