I remember I was working on this for a sample, and I getting frustrated with it, and put it aside. I put it aside for so long that the fabric sold out, and as I said, "well, shit," I shoved it aside again.
Some very, very valuable lessons have been learned since then:
#1. Keep the pattern with the project when you have to put something aside. Lord knows you won't remember how it goes together six years later.
#2. That 1/4" seam ain't no joke. Learn it, live it. Because when you have to put something away, having that 1/4" mastered means you won't spend an hour and a half ripping apart, and reassembling shitty blocks.
#3. Take some damn notes as to which fabric is which. Because you won't remember which pieces are which after they have chunks cut out of them six years later.
Grumble, grumble, grumble; gripe, gripe, gripe.
So this is The Power of Three by Quilt Woman. My sample was out of the Za-Za-Zing line by I-Don't-Remember-Who. And yes, since all I have left of this pattern is the cover, I will be assembling this by looking at the picture and winging it. How hard can it be?
Actually, after about an hour of figuring, I think I have how it goes together down. And if not? Well, just like skinning cats, there's more than one way to assemble a quilt. BAM.
SO here's what I have so far. This is going back away for a few weeks until I can finish up the (several) projects I have to finish within the next 3 weeks.
Don't worry, I took some of these apart and redid them, because WOW o.0
Did I mention half of the blocks I found were in various states of completeness and missing-pieces-ness? Thankfully I at least kept the extra fabric with it.
