This got me thinking about quilting and how fabrics look different depending on how you view them. I miss so much if I don't take the time to lay out my fabric choices and spend time looking at them from all angles and in different lighting.
After my berries were put up into jam, I sat down to work on a quilt I had just started. Thinking I knew how the block went together, I skipped the step of laying the pieces out ahead of time. When I went to lay the completed blocks out on the floor, I realized I had sewed the background strips onto the wrong sides of the star block.
Just like looking at fabrics and berry bushes from different angles is important, so is the step of laying out the block before sewing. I would have saved myself an hours worth of unsewing with that simple step!
