When you start a quilt using a pattern from a book or magazine or even the internet, do you
1. Follow instructions exactly as written,
2. Follow the colour scheme,
Or do you
3. Find an easier or more comfortable way to make the units,
4. Choose your own colour way.
Asking because in the little top I finished yesterday I did not follow directions religiously. I read the directions start to finish, then do it again and see where I can make some construction changes, quicker and easier. I almost always chose my own colours and sometime I even change the size of the blocks and therefore the quilt. Earlier on I would never have" dared" to do that.
What do you do?
