    OK: Really nice design. I have EQ and love it. Could spend hours looking at the detail in those "crazy" blocks. Looks like it was fun to put together.

So I have all these sections ready to assemble into nine 12.5 inch blocks, but have to remake "section D" of each block. Hmm. What did I learn from this?? Yeah: measure each print out and then assemble a whole block before making all the sections for 9 blocks.

    Trying to figure out how I could use what I have, I rearranged the pieces from a baby quilt layout to a table runner, which makes me closer to a finished product. I think I still have enough fabric for that configuration. I am so discouraged by all the incorrect section D's I can't use, though. I put everything into a box and haven't worked on it for a couple of weeks.
    I got this out a couple of weeks ago and made a correct section D. I put one block together. But it is still so discouraging. So I started a completely different project.

    What a disappointment jaspersu. Depending on the blocks--could you put the wrong sized section as a center piece of a crazy/crumb block? You could even slash those sections with a rotary cutter those sections before you made them into crumbs. As I'm not a big fan of PP, my BP would have risen sky high and I would've scrapped the whole project and chalk it up to experience. Some people have more patience than me.

Size:  51.0 KBGreat job on finish. The teal is very pretty. Guess you need to do the other one for December.

    It seems I have been so busy with customer quilts and class samples that I have not finished any UFOs yet. Not sure if I did post that I finished some placemats and table runners that needed done from last year. I do not like the pattern. think that is why I did not like finishing it, but managed to get thru them.

    QuilterMomma--good job finishing the placemats. I have a couple projects that I have started and if it's something I end up not liking a change the pattern.

    Today I am working on a quilt for someone else. A little of the border left to put on and then start tying it. It's frustrating since I hurt my shoulder I can sew for near the time I used to.

    Quilter Momma: Understand the"I don't like it now syndrome" but they are so cheerful and seasonal that you or who ever uses them will get a lot of enjoyment. Concrats on the finish.
    Sorry to hear about your shoulder. Awful to want to do something and not feel up to it.
    Well seems like I am always bringing up the end of the train. My Oct UFO became my November UFO but I am ready to put the binding on so barring a catastrophe it will be done in November, pictures to follow.
