I’m going to file this quilt under “I had an idea for a quilt but then forgot what it was and by the time I remembered it, it was too late so I decided to just power through and get it done.” Has this ever happened to you? This quilt totally didn’t turn out the way I planned and once I realized what my plan was, it was too late so I just played a bit and it ended up as a large courthouse steps quilt. It still kind of worked out and I enjoyed just playing a bit.
The back is a fun numbers fabric that, honestly, is just fine for a bright quit like this.
I must confess that the biggest mistake I made with this quilt is the quilting. I had used my zigzag stitch for something just before I started quilting and forgot to change it back. Instead of picking out the stitches, I just went with it and used zigzag stitching for all of the quilting. It kinds of adds a nice texture to the quilt and I may just have to make this same “mistake” again sometime :-)
This quilt is for Project Linus. I’ll do a better job of planning out my next quilt to avoid the same frustrations!
