You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run.
I blanked out the words I expressed after sewing this project together
after weeks of working on this ********* thing. I obviously didn't add enough for a seam allowance on the trees. This is for a challenge I was going to participate in that requires making a row quilt that is 40" X 12" and pattern of the project to give away of the area where I live.
My thought was to do this landscape and make 4 of them, each in the different seasons of Vermont colors.
Sewn together in theory they would make the 40 inches.
Includes a barn and a little house. Separately they aren't bad but trying to get the pattern to come out measuring 40" after sewing together is not working. I suppose I could add a half inch or so to the trees but then I have to go thru changing the pattern which is a process since I don't do these in a computer program plus, I've been working on this way to long and am beginning to hate it so it's going to be banished to the shelf. Time to walk away and move on.
I think a lot of people participating in the row challenge have EQ, the quilt computer designing program. EQ wouldn't be worth it for me because I do mostly applique although I think they do have an applique feature.
Do you have EQ? How do you like it? How is the applique feature? Do you draw your own designs with it?
