Recently I made myself a promise not to start any new quilting projects until I complete some of the UFOs I presently have. Do you know how difficult that is......of course you do. There are so many new fabulous projects and patterns and it takes all my strength to resist. I must have at least 10 unfinished, partially started, almost done quilts that I have committed to finish. I started this BOM a few years back and it was on the agenda to get completed. It's called "Pieceful Nights", but it's causing me stressful days. I have all the blocks completed, the centre block is done and all the template pieces that go in between are finished as well.
I started getting into the nitty gritty of putting it all together, which is a bit of a challenge because a lot of the corners are mitered and there must be at least 20 template pieces to get lined up. I thought I was doing pretty well until I came across the first dreaded miter corner plus a Y setting *!@_^%!@(&^$(^$~_^
I have sewed and ripped and sewed and ripped that thing at least 5 times and last night at about midnight I finally gave up and went to bed with a headache. I just couldn't grasp it. This morning, in a better frame of mind, I called Gloria who taught the class and she has graciously offered to come and teach me how to get these corners done correctly so I can tick this one off my list. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll post the completed one and can once again have pieceful nights and stress free days.
