Dear Jane Dilemma
Naturally I found that I hadn't got enough of the sashing fabric to add the last two narrow borders to frame it, so I went and bought something fairly similar, but still different. All in the spirit of this scrappy creation.
However, I have a dilemma. I have the (almost) perfect place in mind to hang the quilt when it's finished. It's the *almost* that's a problem. The space (which is nearly finished - the window should go in later today) isn't *exactly* perfect.
Should I do the nearly unthinkable and shuffle the layout so that I have a rectangular quilt? It would mean losing four blocks from it, turning the quilt into an 11 x 15 block quilt. It feels wrong to be doing that in one way (the 'rule keeper' way) but right to make something that fits my space (the pragmatic, excited to display way). What would you do?
