Im such a Hare.
You know the story about the Hare and the Tortoise, well I am the Hare when it comes to making a quilt. I have been steaming a head making my Spring Flower Quilt and last night I was burning the midnight oil, trying to put it together. I only had to join all the panels this morning then on to the outer boarders. Then Shock set in as I discovered I had made a big boo boo. I had totally mis-read the measurement for this block and cut it 6 1/2 x 12 1/2 when it should have be 6 1/2 x 16 1/2. I know quite a bit of a difference in size. I have now cut another block and bonded the pieces on so I can take it to the blood clinic with me to blanket stitch the applique. I know its not a race, I just get so excited and engrossed at the prospect of gorgeous fabric being cut and then transformed into a thing of further beauty. In this case a QUILT.
