Read the instructions

I worked on the Skinny Stripes quilt and it turned out great. I laid it out to stagger the strips and wondered why it was so wide. Something didn't seem right. Well, it was because I hadn't trimmed the jelly roll strips. I had cut off the selvages, but the strips needed to be cut down to 32 1/2 inches. That is a good 10 inches less than my strips. So, I get to rip one side out and sew the strips again. I do love the colours and I've learned a good lesson on reading instructions even when it seems like a ridiculously easy quilt.
