This is the lesson that I learned the hard way...
never cut fabric
when you are tired
when you have spent the entire evening
at the pool
(like close the pool down ...entire evening).
Because bad things are bound to happen.
you may cut the wrong amount of squares.
In this case, I cut way too many squares.
you may wake up grumpy and snap at your
Hubby when he asks "What's for dinner tonight?"
Yep...both of these happened to me.
I go over both of these
once I had a quick jolt of caffeine in my system.
The main thing about cutting fabric when you are tired
is the fact that you don't get to appreciate
the beauty of your nicely cut stack of fabric!
I know, this is something that only
a quilter could appreciate.
When I got home this afternoon,
I walked past my cutting table
and saw a pretty, little rainbow of fabric sitting there.
I was too tired last night to notice it:
a softer rainbow, which is not my normal.
For my beige quilt,
I cut an assortment of 12 1/"2 X 6 1/2" rectangles
from my cream, white, and beige fabrics.
Whispering fabrics because they would
when placed next to more colorful print fabrics.
Here are the white fabrics that I chose to use:
Be still my heart...I cut my precious Hushabye fabric by Tula Pink!
Here are the cream and beige fabrics that I chose to use:
Now a shot of all (180) 12 1/2" X 6 1/2" rectangles that I cut last night:
If I would have been alert,
I would have noticed that I only needed 160 rectangles!
See why you never cut fabric when you are tired!
On the upside, at least I cut them the correct size, which could have been a disaster.
Until Next Time...Happy Quilting
