Spring was a long time coming, wasn't it?
It seemed like it to me.
In January, I joined QuiltDad's Block A Palooza Quilt Along.
It was my first and I didn't put much thought into it
beyond, oh, this sounds fun! LOL
After a few weeks, I really wasn't liking what I could see the final product turning out to be.
So I stopped and set it aside for awhile.
Eventually, I redesigned the quilt into something I did like
and got back to work on it.
I finished it and sent it off to the quilters,
with a bit of trepidation.
I let Allie pick out the thread color, as it was going on her bed,
and she picked pink.
Since the center design block is white, I was more then a little worried
about how the pink thread was going to look.
But, we picked it up from the quilter yesterday and I love it.
The pink was a perfect choice and the quilting itself is wonderful.
Imagine my surprise when I was checking it out and realized I had
messed up one of the rows! Eeeekkkkkkk!
The blocks were supposed to alternate.
But when I attached the top row, I accidently flipped the row and ended up
with matching blocks in the corners. Nothing I can do about it now.
Ohhhh, but I am upset with myself.
Here you go.
Waiting for Spring.
