This past weekend I dug up another old project and decided to get it completed.  There is always a problem with coming back to an old project, especially this one.  It does not have a pattern, I am simply making it from a picture I snagged off the Internet.  

This is the first block of the top row of the quilt.
This is the center of the first row.  
This is the end of the first row.  All just perfectly done. 
Well this should have been the beginning of the bottom row.  Notice the unsewing!!!!  I got it all completed, but it ended up being a good inch too narrow.  That is what comes when a project is set aside and one does not pay careful attention to the instructions and in this case lack of good instructions.  The white strips were suppose to be finished at 3 1/2 inches wide, well I cut them 3 1/2 inches.  Yep, a good inch off.  All is not completely lost.  I have yards and yards of Kona Snow, so I'll just spend some time this coming weekend and get it back together correctly.  Right now since this is still a project in progress I'll just link up.


  1. oh my goodness!!!
    love this project!
    you are so inspiring!!!

  2. What beautiful fabric choices! I can relate to your "unsewing"; I'm at a similar stage with one project right now. Looking forward to seeing more progress, Donnalee!

    Thanks for posting to The Needle & Thread Network's WIP Wednesday!

  3. I have had similAr issues when I let a project sit for too long and can't remember all of the details. It is a bit frustrating. Luckily you have extra fabric and the pieces that were cut too small are an easy color and size to use in another project. Thank you for linking up!

  4. Love those Joel Dewberry fabrics!! I can completely relate to ripping out seams due to mis-cutting. Ugh! Well, the annoying part is done, it's only sewing forward from here! ;) I am looking forward to seeing your finished top!

  5. I have a bundle of this fabric waiting to be used, so yours caught my eye. I'm curious to see how it goes together; it looks great so far!

  6. Bother on the miscalculation and need to unpick! Hope it comes together now with no further problems. Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

  7. Oh, bummer. It happens to all of us at some point that we have to spend as much time stitch-picking as sewing. But for some reason, we love quilting anyway :0! I like the fabric choice there - very nice colors.
