Renamed: Finding mistakes...

This weekend I put the binding on the "Ex's & Oh's" Quilt...

I actually used the left over binding from the Dinosaur Quilt.  I think it went great!

I pieced the backing for the witchy quilt...

I love this tweedy gray.  I think it goes great with this quilt.  Off to quilting!

I am working on this quilt.  So far I am not pleased with it.  Ever have something just NOT turn out the way you thought it would?  Well, this is one of those.  I am trying to salvage it, and my interest in it.  I so love this fabric too!  Bummer!

.....aaand  I just saw I so screwed up that last row!  Holy smokes!  Back to the drawing board.  Grrrrr!  I will get through it! (EDIT:  I did not screw up, it just looks weird in the picture.  When I turned it I saw the pattern again.  WHEW!)

Keeping you posted on the albatross front.....



  1. Perhaps it is time to let the last quilt rest -- away from you! I'm thinking a closet or a drawer would do nicely. Retire it for a while. Wait. A few months at least. Go on to things you like. When you return, if you're lucky, it won't bother you and you'll be inspired to proceed.

  2. I agree with Bonnie, let it sit and let go of your intent and see it with fresh eyes later?

  3. I have a pile of resting quilts! (Some where around 80 UFO's?) I plan to awaken many of them this coming year! Don't be so hard on yourself! : ) Happy Holidays!
