I started this quilt in 2007, as a "block of the week" with my sister. After completing the 48 blocks we planned to make I was not happy with myself because not all of the blocks "measured up!" What to do with the dozen that were just a shade undersized? Put the whole stack in a box and let it ripen, obviously!
Finally, this summer I attacked the problem. I attached 2 inch wide coping strips on just two sides of each of the blocks. Next, I squared the blocks all to the same 8" size. Then it was a simple matter of twist and turn the blocks to make the final design. Whew!
Now I have another quilt top that awaits the time to be quilted. I have a stack of five tops waiting now. I'm always behind on something. Do you find things getting ahead of you and for no reason? Life is sure interesting!
