ARE WE DONE YET????

I got up and got around and did start on the quilt--
the first step was squaring up these blocks--
then laid out the piles of pieces--
this quilt is put together on 'point'--
my least 'favorite' way to put a quilt top together--
very quickly --
I had to move to the bed in the bedroom to lay out the quilt--
and I had a problem part way through--
I thought I was off by '3' more of the 9 patch blocks--
but--
I found more done out here in the dinning room--
that was a big relief--
but then I was having trouble with the corner pieces--
and things were not matching up right--
finally--
a 'light-bulb' moment--there is '4' corners on a quilt--
and they take a different direction triangle for that--
then things progressed nicely--
these little 'abc' pins came to the rescue too--
only could not find the 'a'--so used 'xyz' buttons--
it really made it easier to know what to sew to what
once I brought the pieces out here to sew!!
I am getting there--just the middle '2' rows to go--
( they were the ones that wanted to be 'different'!!)
and at around 3pm this afternoon--
I was ready to square up the quilt--
and here she is--
One rather large top for me--is done--
this measures--52" wide by 66" long--
if I had more of the light blue flower print--I would make nice wide borders
and this one would easily fit my twin bed--
but this line is old enough that I know I won't find any more of it--
for now I am finished with this one--
I was only going to finish the rest of the 12 blocks for this top--
but now I have a whole quilt top--amazing!!!

And I have decided I am going to take the next week off--
from much sewing that is--
I need to do some serious spring cleaning around here--
so that is the plan!!!!!


     ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DIANE
