Still can’t put the American Flag Quilt down!
No state today, just a star filler to even out the 13 first states. It’s still really pretty! I never know until I stitch what the colors are going to look like together, and I love that element of surprise.
Speaking of surprise. I finished the “stars” section of the flag, put it down and looked at it, and I realized there was something wrong with the proportions of the fabric. I think something went wrong when I was calculating the size of the fabric before I placed this order back in August. My own fault – I’m not great at numbers – and I must have done the calculations for a smaller stitch count, and when I decided to go with the 28 ct. Bone Jazlyn I guess I didn’t re-calculate.
The point of this little story is that I am now a quarter of the way through a sampler that won’t fit on my fabric. I’m not willing to abandon it at this point and start over, so I’m just going to have to adjust. It’s not going to look exactly like it’s supposed to, but I’m going to do my best to squeeze it all in! I’m not too worried, I think I’ve got a good plan to do it.
Anyway, I’m going to put this piece down for a bit and get some perspective.
See you on the other side!
