    It is a 20 1/2 inch square right now. Again I have never done a crazy quilt before this one.
    Cut the whole quilt into 4 or 9 sections and sew back together! Even crazier and I bet you'd like it better. No long strips then.

    I got my sweet little DQ from Sharon(luvstoquilt). It's so so so pretty. She did a ton of bead work on it. The only thing crazy about it is that it's crazy beautiful. It's going on my baby girl's wall. Here are some pics.

    Lisallisa...thanks so much...your little one is adorable.

    Robin, I am thinking of you and praying you will soon be feeling like your old self. I have a friend that was a donar...I was her mentor (I am a cancer survivor so they do not accept my blood, bone marrow, etc) She really went through a lot to donate...she got shots for several days and spent a bit of time feeling like she had the worst flu she had ever encountered. After her donation she had to go back for a stay in the hospital and several days of extensive IV's. Guess what, she will do it again if she can help someone that matches her! I know (she does as well) her part was just a bit of what you must be experiencing. Praying for you, my dear friend (that I just know on the board)and hoping your recovery is swift. I really do want to see more of your fabulous quilts soon. Hugs and much love..Sharon

    I tried your suggestion, and yes it would have worked if I hadn't cut it apart when I was tired and didn't think about making the sections the same size. Now I will have to figure out how to get it back together. UGH I know better.

    I have started another one that is not on muslin. Just piecing it together and trimming to get straight lines. I for the long side I am going to put some together in smaller pieces so no long strips.

    Createfourpaws: "I have started another one that is not on muslin. Just piecing it together and trimming to get straight lines.

Did you rearrange the four sections after you cut them before sewing back together--can't think why that wouldn't have worked. Oh well. I know what you mean -- you want what you want! Start with a five sided piece and it will work out better probably! Sorry I lead you down a wrong path earlier.

    BertieD - you didn't send me down a wrong path. I just didn't pay attention when I cut them apart, they are different sizes in length and width. My bad for not thinking about that before I cut them apart. It would have worked.......if I had paid attentionn to what I was doing. I love the idea to keep from getting the long pieces.

    It is all good. For me it is a learn process. ANd for that one was done with all scraps.

    Cindy, sew your CQ back along the same lines you cut from - it'll have a seam there, and the long strips will still be almost as long, but it will be different looking with seams in places. Might work to save the entire square????

    The bulb in my Ott lite is blinkin', blinkin' and going baaaad. I thought I had an extra bulb for it in the linen closet. So I start looking for it and wound up with a clean closet! Where does all that extra stuff come from? Someone mentioned watching "Hoarders" and was inspired to throw a few things away. I watched a few episodes of "Clean House" and also began throwing more things away. My DH is sort of a neat freak and that's pretty good except for one thing. His disorder is there for a reason! He thinks mine can be pitched willy-nilly, haha. While I do have a lot more "stuff" than he does, "Clean House" doesn't need to come over -- yet, LOL! When I start looking for a certain piece of fabric, my fabric gets a little better organized, but that is something that just doesn't last! I started sorting my buttons into jars by color one time; the jars were BORING so I put them back in the huge jar. I should be a rifle (going only one direction til the job gets done) but I'm a shotgun (I go in many directions at the same time). I get sidetracked easily so I always have several projects in "I wanta be a real quilt" stage. And somewhere I have a pattern that would be terrific for June's theme. Guess I better start looking for it now, haha.

    Hugs to all those hurting!

    At least you have closets to hide and stuff your stuff in. I have only 1 closet for my clothes....LOL I have no storage space in my apartment. UGH it gets crazy when you have no where to hid anything.
