You know the idea of the Happy Accident. When you make a mistake and it turns out to be better than what you intended to happen. Well, today I had an Unhappy Accident. I sewed a section of Neno’s Apron Quilt on backwards. Instead of just taking out the stitches and sewing it on right, I thought, maybe this is one of those Happy Accidents. So the spent the next, oh I don’t know how long, trying to redesign the rest of the quilt around this mistake. Finally, thank God, I realized it just wasn’t happening. I had put those 3 pieces of fabric where they were for a reason and that was part of what made the whole composition work.
So we had lunch and moved some hay ( with the help of Jenna and Ajay) then we came home and I got out the seam ripper. I made it right and was able to piece the rest of the quilt together before dinner.
This piece is going to the Adirondack Museum Fiber Festival with me on the 15th. Tess, Neno’s granddaughter may even meet me there and pick up the quilt in person. What a delight that would be.
