When Bad Things Are Done To Good Fabric

I am such a doofus. I took the bargello/brick top to work this morning to pick out borders. I put it on the classroom table first thing this morning and then completely forgot about it. By the time I realized that I hadn't cut any fabric for sewing tonight, it was too late. I had to rush out the door to take Audrey to rehearsal.

So, after preparing my materials for my liberated piecing class tomorrow, I dug around for something to do. And pulled out this. See, once upon a time (like 3 or 4 years ago), I got this new Lazy Girl flying geese ruler. And we had this new line of fabric. And I conceived this plan to make scrappy geese set with big squares. I made the center blocks and I hated it. My "vision" had cataracts. So I stashed it away.


So tonight, I drug it back out and pieced borders for it. Is it liberated, maverick or just plain awful? Doesn't matter - the top is done and I'll quilt it for Project Linus. I've even made scrappy binding for it. If nothing else, I can chalk one up for progress on another UFO.
