Measure twice, cut once

We’ve all heard it.
We’ve all said it.
We’ve all NOT done it!

There is a piece missing in this well know piece of advice:    “READ THRICE”

I started working on my Mystery Quilt for a Cure:

And I ‘thought” I was well on my way…little did I know I was going backwards!

We all have an Achilles heel – mine is when a situation requires a decision and both options are of equal value / deal / amount of work.  A 50/50 is my worst nightmare.

So I cut up all my fabric into the strips, sewed them together (albeit incorrectly) and did all the sub-cuts. Then I got the next set of instructions….and I’m looking at it, and looking at it and noticing that my sub-cut strips are not like the others being posted on the blog.

I do the next natural thing – re-read the instructions. I did not arrange the fabric right when I put the strips together in step 1 – UGHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Now the conundrum – do I tear all the pieces apart and put back together or do I just get new fabric and start over.  UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH! I’ve been stuck for a week now!!!!!!
