So I wanted to make DH a wall size quilt for Christmas using this Rectangles Behind Bars pattern http://www.judysisneros.com/FloraFauna.htm (I was planning on make it a square with one of the "behind bars" thingies). I started on it, cut everything and sewed [IMG]http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r...n/DSC06075.jpg[/IMG] this strip set and about a quarter of the blocks, and then realized I'm lousy at sewing 1/4" seams (yes I have a 1/4" seam foot but sewing perfection is not something I'm good at). So now I need to either rip the seams out of every piece and re-sew them, or buy more fabric, cut everything again and re-sew...or just choose a simpler pattern (or plan D, just give up which sounds really tempting right at the moment)?
I was really hoping to get this quilt done by the end of the month and there's no way that's going to happen. I don't know how I'm going to find time to do this and the six million other Christmas gifts I need to make in the next two months (did I mention I have a 3 year old and an 11 month old??).
