    I was cleaning out my sewing room and digging through some small boxes I had in there and found the peices of a couple of quilts I had started. I don't even remember when I started either of them, but I do now know it was before I had a clue how to make a quilt top properly. LOL! I'm not even sure how or why I did them the way I did. Anyways thought I would share. So funny. Maybe someday even as bad as they look I will finish them.
    At least my cutting and peicing techniques are getting better with each quilt top.

    Irish chain, I think sorta started. The blocks are so wonky it is funny

    Realized I don't have enough of the yellow to even do another large strip to make three across on the strips

    Cut the wide yellow in half, and put the third row of strips between what you have (in the middle), then add blue borders. It will look lovely.

    Thank you what a great idea. Duh, I hadn't even thought of that.

    Very good idea. It didn't occur to me either.
