Almost....

I'm getting REALLY close to a finish here.
Last week I thought I had ARRIVED!

I was able to sew THREE rows together as I talked with friends.
It was nice.
THEN!!!!!

I had to RIP it ALL out!!!!
Eeek!
I had put them ALL together backwards!!!!

See that white diagonal going through there????
I want that to continue through the WHOLE quilt...
not zigzag at the END!!!
;)
Hmmm....
Today.....I'm going to do it RIGHT!!!!

  4. Awesome! I love it.
    Questions. How long have you been working on this project? How small are your squares? How large do you want to make this quilt?

  5. Oh look at all of those scrumptious squares! The blessing in noticing your turned around blocks is that you saw them before you quilted it! I'm only chuckling because I did the exact same thing on my western many trips top. Every home should have a postage stamp quilt. They just beg to be snuggled with and one has to slow down to snuggle. I think the world needs a lot of slowing down...and snuggling. The solution: A postage stamp quilt in every home!

    Looks gorgeous! Kudos and then some to you.

  18. Sorry you had to spend a little time with the ripper. How frustrating. I'm in love with this fabulous scrap quilt! It is going to be great and worth the frustration when it is done.

  20. Wow! This is a great quilt. I hadn't noticed the white diagonal until you pointed it out, but I think it subtly organizes all the scraps just enough.
