Ruthie's Quilt Top... Check!


Saturday my wonderful and amazing fiance had his fantasy football draft so he was out of the house most of the day and you know what that means... hours of pure, unadulterated sewing! Ruthie's baby shower is next weekend so all my focus was on her quilt. And the quilt top is done! Woo Hoo! But I had a little problem when I was piecing the last row. Can you tell?


Look closely...


I ran out of squares! I found myself 8 squares short when I got to the two long rows. Yikes! So I came up with a solution that I think works and now I'm calling it my happy accident! Thankfully there was a strip of solid yellow and one of solid green in the jelly roll so I peppered them into the two long strips.


Thankfully it was a mistake I could hide and it looks like an intentional piece of the design aesthetic. Oh, if that was the only mistake! More on that later...
