I decided to make block two last night. I broke my self-imposed rule of not quilting at night because when I do I make mistakes. I must have been super tired last night. When I finished block #2 of Donna's Quilt Along, it was way bigger than it should have been. When I squared it down, I lost some points. I had used some of my precious Japanese novelty prints and really didn't want to waste them. So, I made a very freeing decision, I'm keeping the block the way it is. Why do we, quilters, put such stress on ourselves? This quilt is not going to competition, will not be featured in a magazine and would still be loved by someone if I gifted it. Truth be told, I am making it for me this time around, so I've decided to lighten up! I love the two blocks together. I'm having fun, that's the best part!
