WiP Wednesday...the One Where it Doesn't Look Like Much

Okay, so I've been really behind getting laundry done and the house cleaned, so I certainly haven't gotten much cleaning done. So you would think that meant I had spent a lot of time sewing, right? Well, ....

I'm not sure what happened. I didn't get much done but there is some progress to show. I've been working on getting the top done for the Dogwood Trails Twin quilt. I've got the center done but I had to rethink the sides.


The way I did the center was fine but I wanted to just extend the sides to make it look like the same thing just extended out to create a drop. However, if I did it exactly like the center, one charm with white on each side was too short and two was too long. So here is the change.

So that will take the quilt from looking like the top row to looking like the bottom row.

I will extend the little 2 inch strips between each row as well. When all is complete I will add the 2 inch strip all around the outside of the quilt. Maybe that will be done by next Wednesday. Sure, I can wish can't I?

Necessity is the mother of invention in figuring out how to make it all work. Good luck with the finish. I'll be cheering you on.
