Sewing my Supersized-Scrap-Quilt is teaching me things that should have been obvious (and probably are obvious to you). The main lesson being that just because something is comparatively quick when you are used to slower crafts like knitting, doesn’t mean that they can be rushed.
Below is a square that I dashed off quickly after work one evening. As you can see, I may have finished it, but it has a very poor finish. Sloppy in fact. Look at all those unaligned corners!
I am not such a perfectionist that I went and unpicked that block (sorry if that makes any seasoned quilters squirm), but I have slowed down and I am taking more care. It is paying off. My latest blocks are much more accurate. Like this one:
I am even trying to maintain this neatness on the back of each block, ironing down seams as I go. It’s actually very satisfying.
Still not sure about the colours though.
