Changing Cour(ner)se

I’ve posted a number of pictures showing the progress of the postage stamp quilt.  Once it was complete, I realized, I didn’t like the corners.  That meant only one thing, change!  Change is time consuming, and tedious, and well, takes energy to alter what is already done, or already appears to be just fine.  It means reordering, and adjusting the way things are to something a little different.  The utilitarian purpose of what ever you are changing may not change at all, but the overall experience and perception and pleasure derived from the total package may change a great deal.

I contemplated changing the corners of this quilt for almost a week before deciding it had to be done.  And then, although very pleased with how the first one turned out, took another three weeks to finish the other three.  Re-dos are not a top priority.  Partially because I’ve been sick with the worse cold in three years.  And changing it meant ripping out five seams, removing two blocks, cutting sashing (too short the first time), and then repositioning said blocks and resewing the seams.  I’m so glad I finally got it off my plate today.

Mark 16:5   As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.
