Rose Update...


I have started piecing the rose quilt together.



I have been busy cutting.... and stitching...


I am assembling it together with different size bricks and blocks and still have a long way to go.  


Do you ever have a day where your brain is just shut down?  Mine wasn't firing on all cylinders today.  Do you ever sew two sections together incorrectly, pull out the seams, only to restitch it incorrectly again?  That was me.  The seam ripper and I were best buds today.


Here's to happy and seam ripper free sewing!
Cheers!

  10. I'm hearing you - I've just put borders on my mystery quilt (I'm calling it the misery quilt) and one is the wrong way around - it is a side border so I have to unpick the top and the bottom (at the start) then the side and resew all!!!

  11. I have done that more times than I can count. Sometimes it is best just to go to bed and start over the next day. I love the fabrics in your quilt.
