Yesterday I started cleaning my sewing room. Over the winter too much junk has accumulated in there and it’s time to get rid of things, put stuff away and get a little better organized. In the process of doing so I found these blocks. They are made from Heather Bailey prints from a pattern called Athena’s Puzzle by Blue Underground Studio. It’s a fun little log cabin variation.
The blocks are all pieced but the project was derailed when I couldn’t decide on the border. There is a diagonal stripe in the line that would make a great inner border.
However, when I started to cut the border I realized the stripe goes the “wrong” way. If I want that great diagonal (left), there would be seams every 18” since I only have a half yard of the fabric. If I cut it the other way, across the width of fabric, the stripe doesn’t work, it’s more a zigzag (right).
In the big scheme of things, it probably doesn’t matter. I just need to get in there, cut it and GET THIS FINISHED!!
