I had today off and wanted to get my Christmas trees at least in rows to maybe bring to the next quilting night. This is where I'm at;
I have managed to sew together the horizontal rows but in the process of ironing all the seams I noticed that I did a very poor job matching sashings on some of them because I never intended to in the first place. When putting the blocks together I noticed that some fit and some didn't- whatever, no big deal. WRONG! It is a big deal and I can't stop STARING at them! I'm tempted to go through and rip them out and sew them back together but I spent 5 hours working on the stupid thing today and can't bring myself to do it yet. To add to it there are some blocks that just won't match because the inner square turned into a monster for some reason so that disheartens me even more.
I also have to decide if I should put a border around the whole thing or leave it be the way it is. I'm tempted to leave it since my one experimental block turned into a table runner which turned into a lap quilt which turned into this odd two-person lap/decoration quilt thing. Problem was I just couldn't stop making the blocks because they got cuter and cuter each time!
I also received a lovely valentines card in the mail from my friend who moved south so now I have Hammy to watch over me in my sewing room. I may bring him to work in attempts to have my friend's humor back at the lab :)
Any thoughts?? I'd love to hear them!
