It was my first time working with triangles, and after cutting some of them wonky, I stalled. For three years! Then this past summer I resolved to finish this quilt THIS year. I fixed the wonky triangles and finished cutting up the rest of the fabric I set aside.
Then, when I laid everything out I realized I made a whopper in miscalculation. I intended on zigzagging the entire quilt horizontally but I came up short. I realized I only had enough zigzags that got me half-way down the quilt.
I flipped it 180 and made a big border around what I had instead. Since this was for my oldest I had her pick out the fabric for the border. I'm glad for the pattern on the border as it hides all the puckers where the fabric gathered as I sewed.
Once the top was pieced, then sandwiched, I echo-quilted every other zigzag, and some straight lines on the borders.
Well it's done, and I'm glad. I've realized I'm a small project kinda gal. I prefer something that can be finished from start to finish in like 5 hours tops.
A pretty loud quilt huh?
Now I need to go and finish that quilt I started for my son three years ago...
Noticing a pattern here?
