I tried various techniques during these two years mostly using the Stack n Whack (SnW) pattern. I wanted to showcase more of the base fabric in the SnW so I altered the layout to include the large wedge on the corners. I practiced aligning my points and stitch in ditch (SID), agonizing over every detail. One day while I was showing off one of my quilts and critiquing every aspect a wise individual told me this. If it was to be without variances it would have come off an assembly line.
