I am in the process of making a quilt for a friend to donate for a school fund raising auction. She wants it to be a Football field made with the field in the center, then the borders being the school colors. This is not a big deal - unless you know zippity do da nada about football!
I spent my day plotting out my field, measuring my yardage lines and the goal lines. Putting the little hash marks down the side lines and all the other things that would make a piece of green Kona cotton look like a football field.
Whoever invented Chaco Liner is a god or goddess, BTW.
I am a yardage line short! I put 10 lines across the fabric but I should have made 11 lines. I screwed up badly. I'll either have no end zone on one end of the field or I'll have no 50 yard line. Crap!
I thought about cutting it apart and piecing in a section with a line in the center to make the 50 yard line but I think it will stick out like a sore thumb. I suppose I'll have to suck it up and redo it tomorrow. What a waste of fabric.
