    Whoop, whoop! Loved your story, because I've been there. that's why I don't cut the whole quilt out at once any more! i hear my husband's voice in my head,'Measure twice; cut once.' I still take as much of my machine apart as I can, and it's usually a teensy, weensy bit of thread hiding in the most improbable place - or the top thread caught under the spool or in the notch.

    Your quilt is beautiful. Has the look of a beloved antique.

    This is beautiful and it was worth the wait. Is there a name/pattern for it?

    To all that asked there is no pattern. It started out as something else and I was inspired by grannies stars in fons and porters 2009 june issue I think. So I had to get out pen and paper and do some math because I didn't have the pattern just a picture of the quilt. You can find my inspiration on my blog that I'm not allowed to post here on the board. I might get in trouble for even mentioning that I have a blog. The rules here keep me guessing. So if I just made another boo-boo Im sorry in advance. I like to call this quilt my Variation of a variation, variation quilt.

    That sure is a lovely quilt! Some projects are just like that, frustrating as all get out. I am glad you kept going back to it. The end result is stunning!

    Once I finished drooling over your gorgeous quilt, I went back to your original posting where you 'told the story'.....oh my gosh, I laughed myself silly! You might want to think about writing as a second career, because you EXCEL at it! (and that's besides doing beautiful quilt work!)....thanks for the eye candy and the chuckles!
