Taking Young Scarlet Apart
This started many months ago when I had completed my squares for the young Scarlet quilt. I had sewn it together before all of the blocks were stitched. I saw that the seam allowance was overlapping some of the embroidery. As I took it apart, I realized why I had sewn it the way that I did. I had accidentally cut some of the squares too small. They were cut on the quilt line. I took these squares to my stitching/quilting friends. I laid it on the bed with the blocks side by side. Everyone liked that layout better. Since there are 3 or 4 squares that are too small on one side, I will lay them on the right side of the quilt. Hopefully it won't be too noticeable.
