    It is a 20 1/2 inch square right now. Again I have never done a crazy quilt before this one.
    Cut the whole quilt into 4 or 9 sections and sew back together! Even crazier and I bet you'd like it better. No long strips then.

    I got my sweet little DQ from Sharon(luvstoquilt). It's so so so pretty. She did a ton of bead work on it. The only thing crazy about it is that it's crazy beautiful. It's going on my baby girl's wall. Here are some pics.

    Lisallisa...thanks so much...your little one is adorable.

    Robin, I am thinking of you and praying you will soon be feeling like your old self. I have a friend that was a donar...I was her mentor (I am a cancer survivor so they do not accept my blood, bone marrow, etc) She really went through a lot to donate...she got shots for several days and spent a bit of time feeling like she had the worst flu she had ever encountered. After her donation she had to go back for a stay in the hospital and several days of extensive IV's. Guess what, she will do it again if she can help someone that matches her! I know (she does as well) her part was just a bit of what you must be experiencing. Praying for you, my dear friend (that I just know on the board)and hoping your recovery is swift. I really do want to see more of your fabulous quilts soon. Hugs and much love..Sharon

    I tried your suggestion, and yes it would have worked if I hadn't cut it apart when I was tired and didn't think about making the sections the same size. Now I will have to figure out how to get it back together. UGH I know better.

    I have started another one that is not on muslin. Just piecing it together and trimming to get straight lines. I for the long side I am going to put some together in smaller pieces so no long strips.
