one star


That's all I got done in two hours.

It included unpicking 4 seams and recutting about half the pieces.

I should have a 6.5" square, but it's oddly 6.5x7

At least I like how it looks and only have to make one! Precision piecing is not recommended when you're tired.

Did you paper piece? Is the pattern freely available? That is absolutely gorgeous!

Doh, I hate it when things go like that! Must say, though, it's really really pretty! Even if your dimensions aren't, ahem, as planned. :-)

Are you channeling me today? Everyday? LOL I love necessity, because it makes us think...sometimes very hard...very painfully...but look what you came up with! Perfect!
