I worked some more on putting the rows together. Half of the top is pieced. Not sure I’m liking it as much as some of the others I have done. I get bored with the piecing of rows. Has not...

I have quite a few sets that do not match. Partly because I ran out of that particular fabric before knowing it needed to be in a matching set. The first FGs I made (although with wrong color) were...
