    Day and Night

    What a pain, too many seams to match.
    There are a couple of places that I need to redo, put the borders on, etc.
    This is what I have so far

    My brother asked me for one of these for Christmas. I made one for my bed about 2 1/2 years ago, and now I'm not looking forward to making another. But, he's my little brother (second youngest out of 9 in all and I'm second oldest) and he just graduated high school this year so I'm going to go ahead and do it. Keep going, you're doing a great job and this post is very encouraging, pushing me to start it before it's too late to get it done in time.

    It looks great; like an optical illusion. It also looks very difficult to make! You're doing great!

    Is it really hard, she makes it look so easy on TV, I was going to try this one next, but maybe I will rethink it. You like you are doing an awesome job though.

    I think you're doing just fine. Be kind to yourself and don't obsess so much. Take breaks when you need to. I'm telling you this because I want to make one myself, and I need to think of encouraging words to remember! LOL

    I am working on this too! At the moment I am still cutting out the triangles. On her dvd she cuts so quickly and easily and gracefully. Even with a brand new rotary I am still having to stop and snip with the scissors. I am fearful how the piecing is going to go. I love the look of the pattern. Keep plugging away at it and let us see it finished.

    The first couple of blocks I did, I didn't like it, but the more blocks I added, the better it looked.
    I cut a few strips out and sewed them together, 1/4 seam, I found that it was tight, NO room for error. The next piece I cut out was the 2 inch strip and i added just about 1/32 to 1/16th to it. (one stitch line) Instead of cutting an exact 2 inch, I moved the ruler over to the right, a tad, just where I could barely see the strip on the left side of the strip and they came out much better. I also found that if I started sewing from the small red, (center small circle) I could control matching the seams better. Spray starching as I went along also helped.

    I've also done a day & nite, made it a queen size for a wedding present. It was time consuming, but worth the effort in the end. Keep going, you'll really like the result.
