I love how detailed Christa's directions are, however I decided not to pair them together before piecing into strips. I wanted to lay out each row, ensuring that there wasn't any duplicates touching each other. I'm not quite sure that was a good idea or not. I think I just made more work for myself. Lol.
Notice all the pre-packaged batting in the background? Lol. I kinda went nuts my last visit to JoAnn's since they had them for 50% off. Unfortunately, I don't have a design wall (but I'm quickly realizing how desperately I need one and am now researching portable ideas), so I'm lying it on my ironing board and lining up the rows. I'm sure there are a million other easier ways to do this, but for now this will have to do.
I got three rows done and sewn together before I had to call it quits for the night. After sleeping on it, I'm not 100% sold on it. I don't know if I just think its too busy.... or if its the fabric not blending the way I had hoped. I don't know. For whatever reason, I'm now having second thoughts on it. I think I'll just keep plugging away at it, and who know... maybe once it's all done I'll change my mind.
Hope everyone is having a terrific Thursday!
