Judy said she selfishly wished I would keep up the posts so I decided to give it another go. This is for you Judy and any other folks who are reading (are you out there??)
If you have been reading you will remember I found my birth mother's side of the family. One of my great nieces was having a baby and it was a great excuse to make another quilt. I bought this great fabric years ago to make a baby quilt for someone else which never got made.
I showed it to a pregnant friend and she liked it so I am making it for her November baby. Meanwhile my great niece, Shaye, picked out these fabrics for her baby.
They were baby soft, Kaffe Fassett and the biggest pain in the neck to work with. Of course half square triangles are on the bias and these blocks squirmed and stretched and made me sorry to have chosen them. They were beautiful but frustrating to work with. Looking back I should have starched them within an inch of their life - like cardboard. That might have leveled the playing field.
I managed to get all the rows sewn and stitched into a rectangle.
Next post, the BIGGEST problem.
