    Smile Thank you for your support - results of your encouragement!

    I started a thread last August, Things are just not working out....., about a quilt top I was piecing from a pattern I bought, Shadowplay. The instructions required sewing blocks and then trimming them down which created a lot of problems when I tried to match seams, etc. I was ready to give up ...... until you all gave me words of encouragement and suggestions to press on!

    Since this post, we have bought a new house and moved so quilting got put on the back burner for a few months which was sad enough in itself. However, it gave me just the time I needed to consider all the wonderful words of advice I received on this board and make a second attempt at getting this top pieced!

    I ripped every seam and started again. I have not quilted it yet (this is my next project as my DH bough a longarm for me last year and I have not felt that I was ready to tackle learning how to quilt but I am diving in to that in about a week, too - slowly). Here's the picture of our efforts - I say our efforts because I did take everyone's advice to heart and as always, YOU CAME THROUGH FOR ME. Thank you so much. I feel a great sense of accomplishment. I also felt like you were all there with me as I ripped and sewed and ripped and sewed. I've said it before, but this is truly the best group of people found anywhere.

    Wow! What a beautiful quilt. It was worth continuing. Sometimes it pays just to leave things awhile and go back with fresh eyes. Brilliant.

    Beautiful quilt! You have done a great job on it in spite of all the ripping etc. You should be proud and I hope you show it to us when it is quilted!

    Wow it looks great now! It is certainly a challenging pattern and you did a super job with your top.

    When we are ripping it gets discouraging. I admire you for your perseverance and now you have a fantastic quilt.
