    A follow-up to "Frustrated" - finished the quilt!

    I did put this away for a couple of days after I posted my 'frustrated' post just like most of you suggested and when I went back to it I had no problems and got it finished Sunday afternoon. Even made the 2 pillows to match. For my sister's wedding present this weekend. PS.....I added a photo of the corner because it is my first attempt to make mitered corners. Thanks to this board I understood what to do!

    Very pretty! Love the colors! It's amazing how being away from something that's frustrating you for just a short time can all of a sudden bring some clarity. I'm glad it all worked out for you. Great miter by the way!

    It turned out lovely and I love the matching pillows. Who wouldn't love to receive this? I know I would.

    So glad you were able to get this one done. Sometimes we just have to walk away for a little while.

    Wonderful. Letting something go instead of struggling is the best way I know of getting through!

    You did a wonderful job on this project.
