Default Changed the pattern!

You ever do this? Find a pattern on line. Think hmmm. This looks easy. Print it out. Have the fabric and start cutting/sewing. Well I did. Made at least half the blocks for a 50x60 quilt. 8" blocks all hst! Piece of cake. However when I start laying out the blocks...nope. Don't like it., Cut the blocks apart. Move the pieces around. Oh this looks better.

Ever hear the phrase "one step forward, two steps back". Well that was my sewing. Definitely counter productive!

Oh Julie, you need to just keep on trucking. Sounds like something I would do.

well, that is better than going on with a pattern that just didn't speak to you. So finish this up the way you want to or if necessary, put it aside awhile. not long but until i think things out on it. have fun and good luck. sounds like you know what you are doing.
