I so totally understand the love/hate thing. It took me about 4 yrs to complete a log cabin for my step-daughter. Partly because it was a surprise for her, so I had to put it all away every time she was at our house, partly because I did one of those "what WAS I thinking" things when I started it...I wanted 1 1/2 inch finished strips, but CUT the first few strips at 1 1/2 inches. :( Once I had that many I figured I would keep going. In the end, it was worth it as the pattern wouldn't look as distinct with larger strips. Then when it was all done and hanging for a picture, I didn't see my BIG oops until I looked at the pix...I had one block turned 90°. At that point , I was NOT going to start ripping!!!!
Hang in there....from the pic this really is a very beautiful quilt!!! Keep us posted on your progress.
