I finish cutting the yardsticks I use for the inserts.
I go to install them and every gosh darned window quilt is exactly 10 inches too short! All eleven quilts are short. How did that happen? I haven't a clue but it's a real DUH moment for me. All that work and not a single window quilt is the right size. So I cut some fabric and add it to the top of the window quilts and install them anyway. See the extra fabric at the top of this one being installed?
Oh well, I did plan to make more window quilts later, in pretty colors, one at a time. My plans haven't changed. These window quilts will work for now because the idea is to cut my energy costs this winter. It's just that I feel really dumb for making that kind of mistake. Thankfully this was work for me and not quilts for a customer. There is no telling how long it will be before I get new ones made again. Making these plain window quilts has taken over two years because of my hectic schedule. Well, I do have a lighter quilting schedule now that I'm semi-retired. Maybe it won't take me as long to make prettier ones. Two installed..... 9 more to go.
