Coming Together – almost there

Well, got so far and then came to a screeching halt tonight.

First of all – this happened:

I had all the columns made and laid them out and something looked a little off. Yep, right there in the middle one of the white on white pieces was in backwards.  It is so tricky with these white on white fabrics when they are faint. I almost thought I had one of the other ones in wrong, but I checked that one and it was fine and I just continued on – didn’t think to check any other ones.  So had to pull apart and put back together.

Trimming these up what not an easy feat at all.  But, I got into a grove and it got quicker and quicker.

Finally got to the point that all the columns were done and I took it up to lay it out and see how it was lining up.


Seeing this all laid out was an awesome site. This one is kicking my butt, but I love how it is coming together.  What I did realize, seeing it laid out like this is that I really do want it to end differently.  I want to have the same direction on both ends.  So I either have to make another column or not use one column.

I wish I would have known this before I made the Geese Migration piece of this project – I think I used a couple of pieces that I am going to have trouble finding enough to make another column.

So I pulled the box out and seeing how it looks. There are 3 that will need to be pieced because I don’t have enough width of a piece of fabric because of the arch. But It won’t be that noticeable, I will put this line towards the bottom.

In the laid out picture, I know it looks like the 5th row from the right is not all the same but it is, it just happened to be a pattern that was a arch and had a dark background, I like how it looks there. I do love this more and more when I see it, even though it is not my color scheme at all. Too bad I didn’t make this 30 years ago, my son’s favorite color was green, we had to have everything green – all because of the Ninja Turtles.

Just to put this project into perspective – each column/row took 45 minutes to sew together and another 25 minutes to trim up.  Lots and lots of concentration on this one, but I really really do love how it is turning out.  So much so, that I have a new idea for a twist on this one – good thing I have a “No New Project” rule this year – see Geese Migration project 🙄 .
