Specifically when she is arranging her scrap blocks on the design wall, she says,
I find I am most successful if I do this step quickly and try not to over think it.I guess that makes me an over-thinker, because I find I am most successful, if I do this step SLOWLY and play with the blocks over the course of a day or a few days. Last night I finished the last two of the hand-pieced blocks.
I'll also be (re) thinking about my initial plan to mix in some pieced rectangles and what this quilt needs in terms of border (or whether it needs one at all). I'll definitely be sleeping on it, too, and giving my subconscious a shot at solving the problem that is this quilt's design.
Are you a speed arranger like Cynthia or is it a slow and considered task for you, like me?
I'm joining the Linkys for Esther's WOW and WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced.
FYI, I have posted the first installment of the Mod-Mod Quilt-Along. If a low key, year-long QAL appeals, be sure to check it out.
