Stash Report - Aug 19

It's been a good fabric usage week. 
2 yards - backing for "Think Outside the Box" - now renamed
4 1/4 yards - August colour challenge

Today, I'm have a quilting day.  Judy's quilt-a-thon last weekend inspired me, and since I didn't get as much done as I hoped, I'm doing it again today.  Slight crimp in the plans, as I discovered that my current block of the month has 1/2 the connecting blocks sewn together in mirror image :(  The debate - redo the wrong ones, or use a slightly different layout and call it design intent.  What do you think? 

Picture 1  or Picture 2 (the blue/red in the top row is mirrored in each picture).

Stash usage this year:
114 3/4 yards out

Hop over to Patchwork Times to see what everyone else has been up to. 


  1. They look exactly the same - Maybe I don't understand...

    1. In the upper row, the dark/light in each quarter of the block are reversed. I agree, not really noticeable unless you know what to look for. But I'm afraid a quilt with random placings of the different orientations would show the difference quite markedly.

  2. Enjoy your sewing day. If it's not noticable in these 3 blocks, I don't think it will matter, your color changes are not dramatic between the light and the dark, maybe if it was different colors it would show up more.

  3. I don't think anyone but you will notice (unless you tell!)

  4. Don't change...almost every quilt I have ever done has a flaw. Some put in a flaw deliberately because only God is perfect. It really doesn't show. I had to study it hard to see it even with you pointing it out! Lynne in Hawaii
