Off to a Rocky Start

I can’t believe I messed up my Camp Loopy quilting project. I had planned to make Make A Splash in a smaller size than the original pattern size, figured out the size I wanted before I placed my order for fabric – forgot to order one fabrics so had to place a second order – but it’s all been sitting here waiting for the start of Camp.

First step was to make those HST waves

I like the fabrics I picked and how they look together but when I went to cut the large piece of dark blue that goes above this section, not enough fabric!  I made the HSTs too large.  I thought I knew what size I had finally decided to make them but did I walk the 12 feet into the other room to get my notes to make sure??  of course not!!

I could order more fabric but the quilt would still turn out larger than I want.  So now to grab the scissors and cut the blocks apart so I can trim the HSTs down to the size I actually want.  Good thing they are just HSTs and won’t take long  to trim down and stitch the rows back together but ahrrrr avast ye mateys – I should be walkin’ the plank for such a blunder (yes Camp Loopy is pirate themed this year).
