How You Design A Quilt
Isn't Always How You Sew It
Yesterday I designed this quilt using the block beside it to the left. But if you look carefully you'll notice you can't use that block to actually sew the quilt. Its corners would get in the way.
The block needs to be altered so that it is on point.
It's a small change but an important one. Now you can sew the quilt.
Quilt design has a split personality. Sometimes it's art; sometimes its engineering. Finding a design you like is esthetics, it's art. Finding a way to sew that design is engineering.
