You Screw Up... and You Learn

Well, I got some work done last night on the Twin Quilt: Girl Version. I decided (for some dumb reason) to cut my white strips the length of the fabric, then cut them down as needed. The smart move would have been to go ahead and cut them all the same length. But no! I did not do that. I started sewing it all together and started realizing that the bottom was wider than the top . I took some measurements and I am not happy. I have pieces that are 34", 34.5" and 35". So this thing is all kind of wonky! I made myself walk away from it so I wouldn't get mad. I will go back and fix it later.
This is what it looked like before I screwed it up. I am going to spend some time after dinner pulling out some seams so I can fix it. Oh joy...

Oh, bummer. But Jan-Maree is right - we've ALL been there!

Oops! I'm sure you'll figure it out and it will look wonderful.
