    Candi, Yours looks great. I haven't been able to work on mine at all. I have to finish my Autumn Boom 6 first also my doll quilt for this month. Besides working on my quilt for quilters due in July. I do still have it on my display wall and it really keeps me going to get to it again. If you look close at my points some are off but I still love it.

    Beautiful work. Very nicely done.

    Did you do 1/4 seams or scant? I can relate to those fairly easy. Bonnie talks about adjusting seams which is somewhat confusing for me. I have a long long way to go on mine. The first step is done. The string blocks are also done and I have all of the cutting completed. Now its the assembly. That's the reason for my questions on the seams.
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    So far I have used all 1/4" seam, but I think the adjusting of seams may be when the blocks are assembled. There are so many seams that it would be easy to get them off just a tiny bit and this could require the adjusting of seams.

    I would use the rule of the galloping horse. Rule says:

    Hang up your quilt. Ride by 6 feet away on a galloping horse. If you can't see the problem, then it doesn't need to be fixed.

    I finally finished all my large string blocks and now I am working on part 7 - adding to the large string blocks. I am about half way finished with this.

    I love that quote. How hilarious!

    Well, I have the quilt all sewn together except for the borders. Working on the pieced border and trying to decide if I want to put a blue or white inner border on the quilt. I think a blue would bring out the blue string blocks. There is a photo of a quilt with a blue border on Yahoo Quiltville Chat site that really struck my fancy! Decisions, decisions!!!
