Look for the Book!

I want to make a small wall hanging as a gift for a friend. I'll need it in about a month, so I started the blocks a few days ago. I couldn't find the book the pattern was in, so I just winged it. I forgot that the little wall hanging used 1-1/4" wide strips and not my usual 1-1/2" wide ones. So now I have 16 blocks to start a log cabine throw for some day. What a difference 1/4" makes!!

This. is. my. life...

I've always liked the look of this quilt no matter what size strip it's made in. Those warm colors click together so nicely.

Absolutely. Would it have mattered? I'm sure that 1/4" in your hands would have been just fine. It takes me so long to produce anything that I am sure I'd have pressed on (no pun intended!)
