Arrgh…this quilt and I have bad karma


From day one, this quilt has been determined to do me in.  It started off with the knockoff Tri-Rec ruler that has different measurements.  I had to re-cut all my triangles.  Next, it was the squaring up but  I pushed on and finished up all the star blocks and all my four patch chain blocks.  I was so excited.  I mean, I am almost finished.  I was going to get this done and work on a free and easy project.  It was so close.  But no.  I hung all my blocks up and WT (if you know me, I say this a lot).  I sewed every single four patch chain block incorrectly.  Really!  I looked at the picture sooooo many times to make sure I was doing it right.  How?  How can this be?

  I am still disgusted hours later.  It looks okay but I know it’s missing a huge chunk of the design.  Can I live with it???  I don’t know yet.

I am a working mother of 3 beautiful children and wife of a very supportive husband (that is addicted to running). I love creative endeavors. Quilting is my way to get in touch with myself and unwind and hopefully connect with others too.

  1. How frustrating for you. Some projects seem to be jinxed from the start. 😦

  2. 😦 I feel for you – very frustrating

    • Thank you. After getting some sleep, I was able to look at it with fresh eyes and realize that my mistake was in piecing the optional design so I think I may be able to save it without as much unpicking as would be necessary if I stick with the original design. Luckily, I had a 50% Joann’s coupon when I bought the black Kona so I went ahead and bought the bolt.
