Positivity 2022

 Maybe you all have heard - but on the off chance you haven't....

Preeti is Hosting the Positivity 2022 QAL this year ( again?)  

This will benefit Mercyful Quilts, for Pallative/Hospice care in California . 

She has come up with a great schedule, and wonderful block tutorial and a due date

Due dates are VERY important... I hate being late to anything, therefore!  I need Due Dates.

She provided a REALLY cool block tutorial, and I, being one of NO patience, decided to jump right in.

Except....Sometimes I forget to read the instructions, and instead follow photos, and you know.... 

My first quilt will look just a little bit different... but its all good!


This is how it happened. I saw her instructions called for 2 1/2 strips and 5 inch squares. so I grabbed my 5 inch plaid square box. Because PLAID!! and I grabbed my 2 1/2 inch square bin and I got to making the blocks.

And I had a stack of them, and decided it was time to turn in... chores start at 5 around here ....

BUT!!! at 2:30 in the morning I sat upright and said - oops - I don't think I followed her instructions right... I can't cut and twist them..... So I pulled up her instructions, and read them... Oh!! 

Did you know if you READ you can learn something 🤣😂😅

But its all good - I like where this one is going, and after I finish it... I am really going to try her tutorial.  I think this will still be good for Positivity 2022 - and it will go there anyways ;-)

My Mom always told me I should learn patience.... here is proof ;-)

Head over to Preetis Blog and learn how you can participate

Your Squares in Plaids is going to be another lovely plaid quilt. I like following the pictures also instead of reading directions. Happy stitching!

Mari said...

I like the plaids! You can still turn them the way Preeti shows. They'll just have a different effect. Try one!

Oh Alycia, I know the feeling of excitement when you just dive in and then wonder later. I have done that more often than I'd like to remember. In the case of Positivity QAL, it is no problem at all if you just stop at the first part of the tutorial and make your entire quilt that way. It will still be a Mercyful Quilt and will absolutely make a difference. Lots of Love and Hugs.

Awesome!

My brain works like that, too, and likes to wake me up in the middle of the night to alert me to things. If only it would be engaged when I need it, LOL.

LOL you made me laugh with "if you read you can learn something".

Isn't it funny what pops into your head at the time of the morning! I'm glad this quilt will be acceptable-it is a great use of your plaids!

Pat said...

It's going to be great even if you didn't follow the pattern to a 'T'! How can plaid be anything but GREAT?!

Hmmm, I have to save this quilt pattern. Your plaids tell me this would make a great memory quilt from a Man's shirts.
