Don't try this at home


So... the quilt. I half assed this thing and right now it is in the final stage where it needs to be finished by connecting the front, back and soft middle layer. I completely sucked at getting things to match up (as you can see at left here, that is actually how F**ed up it is), but I was too lazy to go back and resew. It is very embarrassing what I did to my shirts! I think in the end I'll be proud of it, but right now being an OCD type person, the non matching corners are killing me. Yesterday many curses were shouted, but today I just have it layed out and when I return from a week vacation I will come back to it (and most likely curse or laugh at it again).

Here's a better look at more squares, maybe if it isn't close up it doesn't look so crappy!

Other than that, I'm enroute Maine for the next week tomorrow. I don't know what the internet access will be, but it might be a nice break from my internet addiction. Hopefully I'll be eating lots of blueberries, getting in some cool weather runs and doing some relaxing. :)
Have a great weekend all!

  5. I've made two quilts so far and they are both wonky but I still love them. You'll end up loving yours too. :)
