I had a request for a lap quilt from a family member. Her preferred colors were mossy green, pale yellow, rust, light blue....check, check check......I had all of them!.....or so I thought.....having the specific color didn't mean I had enough of each!! Right from the start I worried about running short, esp. the background leafy green batik. That's why I cut and arranged all the strips on my design wall before stitching them together.
That was a good decision as I was ever so short of the green batik.....and had to make it stretch by reversing the fabric placement on 5 blocks....seen below. I hoped it might add a certain zip/interest to the quilt but it didn't. Happily, I don't think it adversely affected the look either.
