Oh my goodness!
I am such a dork!!
All the efficiency techniques in the world won't help me
if I screw up on the basic math.
I often over cut for a quilt,
especially a patchwork.
I like to have plenty of options....
This quilt, though
I have thoroughly planned out.
Well, sort of...
I mean, I figured out exactly what I need, piece wise, but not where they'll go or anything...
I even drew up a fabric cutting diagram,
Here, let me show you it again, bigger:
Only a teensy tiny smidge of waste.
But do you see what I did?!?
Quilting cotton is roughly 42 inches.
My diagram designates that I'll cut with my fabric folded in half,
giving me roughly 21 inches.
I have 28 inches of cuts.
I am such a dork
Every single fabric I cut,
I was several pieces short.
What's especially bad:
I didn't figure out my error until I started cutting the second half of my stack
I am such a dork.
If you'll excuse me, I need to come up with a new cutting diagram.
