What a pain in the rear!

I had such a hard time w/ this block! I really wanted to make it, so skipping it wasn't an option. The dilemma I had is that my cuts of fabric are 4 1/2" x WOF. This block need more inches of fabric than I had. I wanted to stick w/ the Good Folks by Anna Maria I pieced each triangle to get the size I needed. Such a pain...and I didn't really try to match pattern or anything. So i finish that, sew them all together and then discover my points in the middle don't totally match up. oh well. I can't rip out and redo anymore! It took me 3 hours to get to this, so I'm done!

And to top it all off, I have to sandwich, baste, quilt, bind, wash & dry a baby quilt for a shower this Saturday!! Husband left yesterday for 2 weeks (so no help from him w/ the kids); I do recess duty at my daughter's school Mondays and Wednesdays for a 1/2 hour (plus 20 minutes travel time); then pick her up at 3pm everyday....when am I going to get this done! My 15 month old decided to make my life a little more difficult by only taking one nap a day and that's in the a.m. where I did the above block (instead, of course doing something that needs to be done in 5 DAYS!) Ahhhh!!!! I need more time in a day!


  1. Sending you whatever daylight's left at my house at the end of my day your way! LOL I didn't even notice the middle of your block...I was too awed by the fabric to notice.

    You know, if I lived closer, I would help you or watch your little ones so you could sew. Isn't it awful when friends live so far away! Poop!

    from me, who thinks you did a fabulous job and that you should medicate your kids so they sleep more...wait, did I just type that out loud! LOL

  2. I love this block and I'm posting it on the blog...I hope that's ok because I already did it. :) Let me know if you want me to take it down.

  3. I think it's awesome and your points totally look fine.

  4. I vote for more time in the day too! Your block turned out lovely. Can't wait to see more!


I love hearing from comment away!
