Have you ever had one of those times where you felt like you couldn't get moving?
Well, that happened to me with quilting. I couldn't get off the dime.
I started cutting fabric for my Through the Ages quilt and then mis-cut a piece. And couldn't fix it. First, I didn't realize I should have fussy cut it a little more because I cut off the head of the knight and the seam would take off the head of the lady. Then I realized I cut it 1 1/2" too narrow and didn't have enough fabric left for a second try.
Thankfully Fabric.com still had that particular print available. Through the Ages website did not. For $2 more, I bought a yard rather than a 1/2 yard of fabric and it's on its way here! $15 later including $5 shipping. That hurt my feelings!
That really took away the little head of steam that had been building up so I looked around for a new project. Preferably quick and easy. The latest issue of the BLOCK magazine had a table runner of hearts and I had some Michael Miller bright solid precuts that I've been saving. It all worked together and I came up with this tabletopper!
Perspective: This is laying on our family dining table that seats 6, and it takes most of the table.
My heart is happy and feeling up to another project now. Hooray!
