I CAN'T COUNT

I decided today that I must not be able to count--anymore!!!
This quilt is driving me crazy--
every time I think  I have cut the right number of pieces--
or the correct sizes--I am off--
But I won't let this one get the best of me--
Here is the 12 blocks now-
they will all go on 'point' in the quilt--
( I cut part of the corner pieces with 5 inch squares instead of 5 1/2" blocks--
guess what--5" don't work!!!!)
and finally here is all the little 9 patches--
--that once again miss counted on--so had to make a stack more!!
and then with background pieces of 3 1/2" blocks I made them into--
In to '20' 9 1/2" blocks--
these are not pressed or squared up yet--
that is tomorrows job--
I worked alllll day on this quilt--
and I can only hope--
only hope that I can finish this quilt with what I have left--
so tomorrow should be interesting!!!!


And remember me saying that I was working on the last--
wool project that I had prepped--

well--this is the start of that project--
it seemed to take forever go get all this stitching done--
to this point--
here is the pattern--
Oh my--I haven't really even started this project yet--
look at all that stitching--???????
whose idea was it for me to make this???????

  2. Quilt math is tricky, worse than geometry I think. Hope you get all the right calculations made so you can finish. It's going to be a beautiful quilt.

  3. Oh Di! You have so much more patience than I do. When this happens to me, I just have to walk away for a while. Everything looks fantastic. (:By the way, I love, love, love the background on your blog site. The old wood and the little rabbit with the cart full of flowers is so cute. Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. When I set a quilt on point, I cut the outside pieces larger than needed. I can always trim but I can't always make them bigger to fit.
