    "What was I thinking quilt". Small squares are not my "forte'". BUT, it turned into my "Quilt From Hell". First the squares were giving me a hard time, then the center panel was so off square I had to starch the heck out of it and square it up the best I could, then I had the center all quilted to find I had to remove all stitching (meandering) that took several hours over several days, then I ran out of bias tape and had to wait until Joann's opened up on Sunday to get more, then, I got all the embroidery done up to the word RALLY and the quilt came off the hoop and I ended up having to rip out 2 letters, that took a few hours. I am exhausted!!!! I didn't mention that I want to get this in the UPS Monday so my DGS will get it on his BD Wednesday. BUT, all in all, I do like it, I'm just SICK of looking at it right now!!

    sometimes quilts are so fustrating during the process, but when they are finally done, the work was worth it and he will love it, and that will make all the troubles go away.
