    grumble grumble grrrr grrrr, I got myself so confused making lots & lots of little squares actually the squares were not the problem I got myself confussed putting them all together I made 2 blocks then completly lost it on the 3rd one however I think I am back on track now fingers and toes crossed, only 2 more blocks to go, tiny 2/12 inch squares 13 across and 11 high,
    or is it 11 across and 13 high oh dear the mind boggles at the moment.

    it is a nine panel quilt I guess being 3 across and 3 down with 5 picture panels and 4 blocks it is a quilt as you go (my style) putting all the strips together with the lining and inner all sewn in at once the only hand sewing so far is on one seam.
    I will post a picture when it is finished.

    I did walk away with quite a headache to go with it, but it is sorted out now, I will be glad when it is finished it will be a queen size for my bed and so far I am pleased with the result

    Don't you hate when that happens!
    It is usuall because one of my kids has me distracted!
    I walk away and say no more for today.
    tomorrow it is always better
    this sounds like an interesting design
    would love to see pics also

    For me it only takes losing my concentration for 5 seconds and then the whole block goes awry LMBO

    ...and you don't SEE that the pattern is off until it's all done. Been there - done that. Just be patient, walk away for a bit and don't stress.
