    MY DALAH QUILT , I LEARNED ON THIS QUILT DO NOT TAKE SHORT CUTS WQHEN CUTTING OUT YOUR PIECES, I DO NOT HAVE MY 1/4 IN SEEM ON ALL PIECES! as for me looking for a short cut on cutting out Looks like I lost this quilt will hang on my quilt rack for show. would never withstand being used. I felt so bad, when i realized i made a mistake.(shortcut) I was ready to scrap the whole thing.

    What happened while you were cutting?

    Did you end up with not enough fabric to make 1/4 inch seams?

    I love the colors! I have that pattern in my do to box, but your colors are just so soft. Very nice looking quilt.

    Just because all of your seams aren't 1/4 in doesn't mean it won't hold up. Remember that the quilting also determines how a quilt holds up; so quilt it good and enjoy this pretty quilt that you created

    Beautiful ! Remember the quilting helps hold it together also - don't be so hard on yourself - we all make mistakes and then we pass it on so I take it as a learning tool. Next time we would change what we do.

    It's very pretty anyway. The colors are great. Glad you decided to finish is.

    When (notice I say when not if) I'm in the situation, I just make the blocks a smidgen smaller to get the 1/4" seam.

    I've had to go back and fix too many in the past that needed first aid after it was washed.

    I'm also fond of stategically placed applique to cover spots that have pulled apart-those that even a needle and thread can't fix well.
