I don’t think I have had so much trouble with a quilt once all the sections have been completed – minus Gone To Texas (which was my first ever attempt at ½ Square Triangles) – This was very easy with the piecing just very time consuming. 170 Shoo Fly’s countless HST – which now I can say I think I have mastered this. You need them done, I have it down to a fine science.
Once I had all the sashing done for each section and then trying to put this on the Center WHAT A TASK that was…I put it all on and then there was this HUGE bubble in the centre for some unknown reason. So I took it all apart yes, I got the seam ripper out and away I went. Then I put it all back together, this time the Bubble was still there but not as bad, but still there. I just did not want to have a bubble I worked so hard on this and bubble was not in the plans. I folded up my top and put it away. I was so ashamed and disappointed in myself that I could not get this figured out. I was totally done with this quilt and actually ready to donate to somewhere, not too sure where but I would find out.
So I left this behind again, and went to work on some other projects that were on my UFO’s to see where I was etc. Well I finally got all my blocks done for my Raggedy and Friends, just need to put the together.
So feeling good about my accomplishment with Raggedy and Friends I thought that I would tackle my Hickory Hills one more time. All that I was thinking that if it does not work this time I am officially done with it and all the hard work down the drain. So picked up the seam ripper again and back to taking it all off AGAIN!!!
LONG and BEHOLD!!! I finally got it done and the top border on and it looks GREAT but there is still a little bubble, but not near as bad as it was the other two times but it works… I really can’t believe that I have finally finished this quilt top and now I just need to find a back piece and everything and get it quilted.
Just so excited.
Till Next Time,
