Want to hear something dumb that I did? (Yeah, I thought you would.)

Want to hear something dumb that I did?  (Yeah, I thought you would.)

A couple years back, when I was sewing on these blocks, I ran out of green. So one day while in the fabric shop I found some more.  I knew for sure it was the same color.  Came home and GUESS WHAT?  It wasn't.  So did I stop there? 

NO!  Cause that would be the SMART thing to do.

I sewed them up.  

LOL!!  WHAT was I thinking?  Hmmm.... I guess I wasn't thinking!  Is that funny or what?

So now years later, I can't find that same olive greenish kind of green anywhere.   I finally found some fabric that's not quilter's cotton.  It's a bit heavier fabric.  I sure hope it works.  I removed the lighter green and used this solid.  
Well, I think it reads better.  So hopefully when the quilt is just thrown over the bed or over a person, it will be okay.

And for your viewing pleasure, here are my blocks all sewn into rows.
This is on my list of things to do after work tonight.   What are your plans?

Happy Stitching,
Nicey er..Dummy Linda 


  1. oh yes! Definitely like the second choice over the first one... LOL. Hugs

  2. You don't think you'e the only person who's ever done that, do you? For me, it was gold in a Christmas quilt. I kept thinking it would work didn't. Ripper here we come.

  3. Oh yeah - the second choice is much better! I had to really look to see it. And yes, I've done the same thing....your blocks look great!

  4. The second round looks so much better...great job!! I hope to see ya at my Get Em DOne Linky Paryt !! Hugs

  5. I like the darker fabric, too. Ya dun good. ;-)

  6. I like your second choice solid - the first substitute was fairly obvious but I had to look twice to see "which one is not like the others" in the second photo. And - like Sunny - I ran out of gold in a Christmas quilt (my "Christmas Lights" - Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt) but I substituted another shade in the corners. Now I say that I did it on purpose. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! ;))
