Layer Cake Conundrum

So. . . .  some plans have been altered -- a bit.

Doing a quilt along this way is about as much as a mystery to myself and the designers as it is to all of you.  It is definitely an interesting challenge.  The layout I had planned looks like it isn't going to work out.  Not to worry -- I have worked through a few scenerios and have come up with Plan J.  Those using fat quarters may still be able to go with the original layout.  Once our blocks get finished, I will give you Plan A and Plan J layouts.  I know some of you will come up with equally fabulous layouts of your own. 

In the meantime -- save all your scraps.  You can use them in other blocks if you want, but don't toss them or repurpose them just yet. 

Don't get worried about needing more fabric.  I will make sure the layout works within the parameters I have set. 

Thanks for staying flexible with me!

This is what makes it so... interesting! And besides, I really joined to challenge myself to go outside of my comfort zones. And so far, with the triangles, it HAS been outside of my comfort zone. LOL. It is interesting to learn that there are many ways to make HSTs.

So I think we are still good with a layer cake and the previous sashing and border yardages? I have been wondering if we have enough dark, medium and light or is that really possible to know? I guess its not.

Flexibility is the name of the game when it comes to these mystery blocks! So far it has been 'layers' of fun!!

I always save every bit till it is over and I may decide to "fix" a block or re-do one.
I am sure it will all work out just fine. Besides, finding a creative way to save a project is an excellent learning experience.

No'll all work out I'm sure :)

No worries... I'm still catching up! Am challenging myself to learn how to use EQ. Will be putting the blocks into EQ this time and seeing if I can come up with a custom set for my layout. I've become used to graph paper and colour pencils but.... Those pieces of paper get lost easily. It'll be great. :)
