It's like a piece of impressionist art. Up close it looks like a mess but when you step back, the magic happens and it's everything you expected... Most of the times. LOL!
Anyway, last weekend I did NOT finish my Petit Four quilt but I made a good dent.
I got all my sashing done...
Put the final handles on the baskets..
and started playing with the layout.
After a few tries, I found something I was happy with...
and started putting the rows together.
I was curious about how do you all keep track of your rows?
I take a picture of my layout as I play with the blocks since I find that the picture allows me to "see" any holes in my colors or any dark groupings.
When I'm happy, I pin a number on the row. I also use colored pins to group the blocks in a row. I always group Red, White, Blue, Yellow, Black and Green. Since I always use the same colors I know that the red comes before the white, the yellow before the black, etc.
If I lose track, or question my setting, I'll pull up my picture and refer to it.
This weekend my sister was watching me refer to my picture and she asked me, what I used to do before the digital age... I said, I would live with the mismatched blocks!! LOL!
