It just keeps getting better...

There is a tad bit of sarcasim when I say that.  Well, as I was arranging my blocks and started to sew the rows,  I noticed that some of the colored blocks looked a smidge smaller than the solid blocks.  But I kept sewing.  When I started to sew the rows together...just out of curiousity, I measured some of the smaller blocks - they were approx. this much off, my thumb & pointy finger are touching!  Needless to say, as I was sewing the rows together, at the same time I was redoing sections of the row so they would line up.  I'm done with the center and am pretty much happy with how it turned out.  There are a couple of squares that are not matching up but I got over it.  The inner border is a saw tooth border and it's not speaking to me (not really my style).  But have you seen Kelly's?  - it looks beautiful!  So I still have some time to figure out how I want my border to look like.  This is going to be a wall hanging so I really don't want to have a big border.  I'm just hoping I don't hit anymore speed bumps with this quilt.



  1. That is beautiful Michelle.. I think it turned out very well and whatever snags you encountered you fixed them up very very well because they sure aren't noticeable from here.

  2. It is lovely, and you will appreciate it all the more for all the sweat equity you put into it. You didn't give up and will have a great quilt to show for it. Good on you!

  3. I love this! Michelle, this is a very happy quilt, and I think when you're done it's going to be like childbirth - you'll admire the finished product and forget the pain!
