I lied. I didn't finish the quilt top last night. I ended up ripping out stitches repeatedly. I love sharing fabric with the gals in the Society of Sexy Sewing Sisters but I am not crazy about sharing sown blocks. Strangely, not everyone apparently measures 1/4" seam the same way! Because I sashed the blocks, the grid had to line up at least reasonably closely so it took FOREVER to get everything straight. I got the first outer border on and the second is cut and sitting by my machine. When I get home tonight I will put on the last border and start pinning. I really want to have this thing totally finished by Sunday. I still have to make something for my mother's birthday on Monday. Nothing like a little pressure to keep the blood pumping!

  1. It's frustrating isn't it? I think it's amazing that not everyone can cut an accurate 6.5" block to swap either!!
