    From Don-isewman-A quilt I'll never do again

    Here is a few pictures, of a quilt top. That I WILL NEVER DO AGAIN. The reason, Im giving, is your useing the same template over and over, etc, etc. All I can tell you is a lady at the inspirations quilt shop in Hills, Iowa. Came to our meeting last month, and passed out these plastic wedges, to everyone, at the meeting that night. I sat down, and started cutting out. I bet I have at least 100, that will never get used. I'll pass them on to somebody. As for a name for this quilt, I'll call it wedge quilt.Name:  004.JPG

    wow..I do like it. Why don't you sew the 100 you have together and use it on the back of the quilt.

    I know what you mean about the repetition. But hang on to the leftovers, they might be used as a border on another quilt, or table runners or baby or doll quilts. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful quilts.

    Love your quilt. I didn't make it to the meeting that they handed out the template, because our son was in intensive care for 14 days. Darn.

    Turned out to be a very pretty quilt. I can only imagine cutting all those pieces with a template. That's not for me either.

    Looks like the "tool" that comes with the Eleanor Burns Braid in a Day pattern. I loved making that one!

    I give you a lot of credit for cutting 100 out. Your scrappy quilt is great! You are a patient man.

    I think your quilt is beautiful....I love scrappy quilts. You did a fantastic job. Hang onto your pieces you have cut out already....you might need to make a quick quilt and that would be a fabulous one to make.
