    Finally done this morning-Don-isewman

    About 3 weeks ago, I posted a picture ofthe 1st row, of this quilt. I was working on. It's finally done. I dont think I will ever do this,in fact, I wont do this quilt again. You had to sq up every thing, you sewed, sq up every section you sewed to form the block, and sq up the block. I have a few more complaints, but wont go in to a book. The pattern is called Apron String--Out of a book by Judy martin-called Stellar Quilts. It''s a very nice book. There is 2 more quilt, i want to do, or think about doing down the road. Take care everyone DonName:  007.JPG

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very pretty quilt, and I can see a lot of squaring up you had to do.

    Don, it looks like your points match perfectly! Good for you. All that squaring up paid off. Your quilt looks great.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    When the end result of all the squaring up is perfect points then it's job well done, on the other hand if then you didn't have matching points that would be a problem. You did a great job and like you said you don't want to ever do that again, at least you can say you did it!

    Boy, oh, boy! I just can't imagine the work. You have met every seam perfectly. You are some kind of quilt maker. I love it. I love the up-close picture.
