    Phew - finally done

    So this is the quilt I made the DGD at JMU for their annual Safe Rides Silent Auction. It was truly the quilt from hell, but I think it looks ok now that it's finished. First I cut the whole thing wrong and had to start all over (not sure yet what I'm gonna do with all those triangle blocks - LOL). Then when I got to the FMQ my machine went crazy - thread breaking, skipping stitches...you name it...it happened on this quilt. But with your encouragement, I persevered and got it done. Victoria is coming home next week for spring break, so I have time for a little breather before I do the label

    Well, it's going to keep someone really warm, since it's from Hell, that is.

    It's a beauty!

            Congratulations, you did not give up and the finished quilt is wonderful!! I know it's wrong to enjoy someone else's misery but I did kind of get a kick out of your post the other day of all of the things that went wrong along the way!! Some quilts just fight you but you fought back--and won.

                      It came out beautiful. Now a prayer that it raises lots of $$ for the group.

                            It looks great. I can understand your pain since I just finished one with 120 small half square triangles. It took me more time to square them up than to put them together. But it came out well as your did and was worth the hassle.
