I Never Should've Opened It...

...my big mouth that is. I opened my big mouth and let on like my master bedroom redo was almost done. It kinda was. A little quilt piecing and send off the quilt to have it quilted and, I figured, by the time I got the quilt back in a week or so, I'd have gotten the rest of the accessories and the curtains together. Well, that was until I laid out my quilt pieces tonight to get ready to sew them tomorrow. This is what I saw...


CHAOS!!! It's so busy! You see, I made about half of the stars. Each star block takes probably ten minutes... 42 stars so far = 420 minutes so far! And I'm not even halfway done overall!! You can see why I got impatient. So I made the much-faster-to-fabricate-square blocks to fill in the blanks. And I just now laid them all out together. It's actually organized chaos (I'm a little OCD), but still, not the sweet pattern I was expecting.

So that's not working for me. I laid out the stars I have so far, without the squares, and it looks soooo much better. Now I have to go get more fabric tomorrow, and then have mass quantities of cutting and piecing to do to make 38 more star blocks! ARGH!
