If it's been months since you read the pattern you want to adapt, it might help to actually glance at the thing before you start cutting fabric. Or you can just do what I did and take those pieces and decide to make something else entirely....
I've found that being flexible makes quilting a lot more fun.
Now I've got a brand new baby quilt that I never intended to make. And all of the blue pieces cut for the baby quilt that I did plan to make.
All of that cutting got a little tedious, so I started quilting Doctor Frankenstein's Monster. Just about the time I hit the point of no return (which was pretty quickly, since I'm quilting this so densely) I figured out why my machine gave me such trouble with the last baby quilt I meandered.
The fusible batting is gumming up my needle. Every time I start to skip stitches, there's a wad of gunk on the needle. So I'm wiping it off every few seconds, hoping I can make it through the quilt before it makes me too crazy.
I'm throwing away the rest of that batting.
