So close

So close and yet so far!

I was eagerly getting a quilt ready to take to the quilter's. All that needed to be done was to cut done the sides to make it rectangular. As I started cutting, I realized that I had made a big mistake. Each row needed to be offset from one another, but I had put two in the same direction. If I cut through the end of the block, the one block would be completely gone. I did not have enough time to fix it, so I set it aside and took a different quilt instead to the quilter's. I will fix my mistake and then it will be ready to go. I am going to be making this quilt again, so I will remember to be extra careful about where I place the blocks!

Hoot, Hoot!

Hoot Hoot

My owl quilt is coming along. I am at the point I dislike in these types of quilt; the scrappy but not completely scrappy layout. I have the blocks laid out on my quilting floor and trying to ensure it all turns out right. It is a slower process and once I get near the end I am always happier.
