Totally Tubular Quilt

Here us the quilt I am working on...

from this book...
...with these fabrics.

Unfortunately I worked about 4 hours yesterday and pinned every intersection...wrong. See the strip set in the center. The line of black and white squares go from upper left to lower right? That is the correct direction. See the strip set in the lower left...those go from upper right to lower left...that's the wrong direction. I only sewed one set correctly, and the rest, all wrong. So I have to un-sew every seam that I pinned so very carefully. I think this one is being put away for a while. I even took out one seam yesterday, and sewed it back, and that was wrong too. I'm only supposed to have 6 strips per set, and that one I have 8 strips. Guess I wasn't too focused.

Well, back to the old drawing board!

Love the fabrics you are using. Such a same you have done all that work and now have to redo it. If it was me in that situation, I would probably ditch the original pattern and work with what I have and make up a totally new design! :)
