    You're off to a great start! It will be beautiful when it is done, and you will be proud of yourself for finishing it! Lovely fabric choices too! :)

    It is going to be beautiful. That is my problem too. But with the design board there just leave it an start something else and it will come to you probably in the middle of the night and it will come together just like you hoped it would. Love your colors. Press on!

    Your doing great! I think it seems that you have lost a little of your confidence. I made an around the world quilt (1st one). Your's looks so much better then mine. Keep up the good work.

    It looks great. What a great feeling when you are finished. Keep going a little at a time and you'll get there. I love TATW's.

    Again, thanks, everyone. It is a fresh day and I am rolling right along, with just enough breaks to keep me sane. :)

    It is going to be beautiful when finished. I so admire you for even attempting this. Not enough patience in the world for me!

    It's going to be gorgeous! Patience doesn't come easily to any of us, but just take your time. I find that when I get in a hurry my work suffers. You want a finished quilt that you can be proud of! When It's all done, quilted & bound, you'll forget all about the time it took to match all those corners!

    Dina, At this point you're starting to feel over whelmed by the enormity of your project. Just focus on what you will day today and try not to constantly look at how much there's still to be done. One block at a time, one row at a time and you will have a gorgeous quilt ready for quilting...

    Wonderful achievement you have going there! Keep up the quilt but give yourself more breaks. As I was reading through the pages, I came to the conclusion that all the Round The World's I had made, were made incorrectly until I came across Jingle's instructions. Sewing strips and cutting is so much easier and quicker and that is why a lot of my charity quilts are made this way. Do take care and try the strip method for your second quilt. Good Luck

    It has almost a Bargello look, and I know you can keep at it. It seems sometimes like they are never ending, but the finished piece is worth all the time and effort. You go Girl, you are almost halfway there

    Relax! You can do this. Yep, I hate, hate, hate all that matching but it'll get done. Take frequent breaks. Walk away from it and remember the galloping horse inspection technique.

    I did 2 of these...sew together 1/4 of the quilt top (top left). Then you just need an opposite - top right and same with the bottom quarters. Good luck.
