Sigh. Remember how you decided not to buy "the rest of the bolt?" Well, you should have!
This would be what we call "false economy." You think you've bought plenty of that Daiwabo Serenity Ombre for the sashing. And if you had made the 12-block quilt according to the pattern, you would have plenty. But if your Little Sailor informed you, "Mom, you know I have a full-sized bed now that I'm not living on the ship," you would not have enough fabric for the sashing!
Rats. Great Hairy Rats.
Here is my WIP Wednesday, "Ryokan Plus." I added eight blocks to make the quilt full-size, rather than throw-size.
I adore the "cobblestone" sashing. But I don't have enough fabric to make the horizontal sashing. What to do, what to do?
Maybe, if the quilt gods are with me, someone will sell me another half yard of this fabric. Beth? Beth? Beth?
