A Great Idea? NOT!

So, I had this scathingly brilliant (Remember The Trouble with Angels with Hayley Mills?) idea to make a quilt for a little girl I know. So I worked and I worked.

And then I didn't like it. At all.

Then I happened upon this awesome tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company. Oh. My. Goodness! Do I love this, or what! So simple and yet looks so complicated. (Of course you see my ever-present supervisor, Chloe, is on the job.)
Ah, much better!

And along the way, I even had an idea for something I might want to do with some of the blocks from the first time around.
My blog name is there for a reason. I truly am muddling just a LOT of the time, but I have fun, and isn't that why we do what we do?
Hope you're having lots of fun with what you're doing!!!!
Hugs and kisses,

Hey, Ms. Muddles, what is that square ruler on the mat? I am always looking for new gadgets. And I'm going to check out that tutorial, thanks for the link.

Yep, I muddle along a lot of the time too and sometimes things turn out better than I'd hope and others not so much but experimenting is the fun part.

VERY nice Ms. Muddle! I love that second rendition -- I'll bet your little friend will too!

Great quilt! You may muddle but you don't procrastinate...I tend to leave my muddles in the back corner of my mind for years-mostly I do figure it out eventually!

Elaine, great quilt and thanks for sharing the tutorial. I like your new ruler...I am also a gadget girl!

Wow, it does look super complicated. So cool!
