What are some lessons you've learned while quilting? (perhaps a little too late, even.)
#1 Plan ahead.
And not just the colors and pattern you want to use, but the size as well. I spent nearly an hour debating on what size to make my blocks. I even used construction paper to cut out a template of what each size would look like. :lol: (I finally went with 12")
#2 A little fabric goes a long way.
I bought 5yrds of fabric for the pattern. I only needed 1yd.
I bought 5yrds of solids for the sashing and pieces around the window. Probably only needed .5yrd of each.
So it looks like I'll be doing a lot of Mickey Mouse projects. :lol: At least the solids can be used for other projects tho, so that's not that big of an oopsie. but I sat there laughing at myself last nite when I realized how much I over bought.
