moving on

Often when working with blocks I will set them out and experiment with placing them.I'll arrange them and rearrange them, sometimes soliciting opinions from other family members. These small blocks were carefully organized, studied and were almost ready to be sewn. I left them, purposely not looking at them for awhile in order to check my perspective. But as is sometimes the case, while not caught in the act this time, my furry assistant did her own rearranging and this time I just decided to go with it and not agonize over trying to replicate whatever placement I had at one time had in mind. Sometimes it's better to just get on with it and move on. Now I'm ready to add a border, backing, and quilting.

LOVE those little blocks all sewn together! I also like the idea of kitty aid. I sometimes toss my pieces into a bag...whatever order I pull I sew! ; ) Crazy, random, stress-free.

Pam, yes, fun and sometimes that is also the best way. Sometimes things work out better if I don't think about them too much.
