And no two patterns match
And certainly identical fabrics next to each other is an absolute no no
And I guess if it happened twice in one block, we'd just break out in a cold sweat and throw the block away
But then what females do sometimes, this female anyway, is pin things late at night when there are no kids around, when we're tired, and subject to mistakes. And then when we make those mistakes, we're just plain too tired to care.
I did, actually, very carefully line things up. I was certain that no two patterns, colors, or identical fabrics were touching. Except I matched the bottom part of the block to the top part of the block instead of the middle portions, so it had no bearing whatsoever on the final outcome.
Luckily, there are enough different fabrics in this quilt that it turned out pretty scrappy anyway.
I'm still loving this quilt, but I'm considering adding top & bottom borders. The current size is 64" square, and that just sounds like cold toes to me. My scraps are pretty tiny, so we'll see what I come up with.
One last gratuitous shot:
And have a good weekend.
