Don't Look Too Close......


Treadmills

I finally finished the little quilt top I had started sometime ago:D
BOY....Accuracy doesn't seem to be my strong suit!
When it comes to all these little 2 1/2" squares my errors are just magnified.
I took it to the quilting lady last week and think I need to try this again:D
I need to brush up on cutting 101.....LOL!
I have a bunch of scraps from Margo's dresses
and
think I will try again:D
These little prints are from the new Mary Englebreit Collection.
Love the old fashioned look to the entire thing:)

I've always wanted to quilt, but accuracy has never been my forte. I'm more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants gal.

:-D

Love the prints!!!! I was just surfing in Hancock's this morning...looking at that same fabric.
Very appealing...

I'm not one of those exact quilters..

Linda- It's beautiful!! The colors are so vibrant and cheery. I think your mistakes must be invisible, because I don't see them. :)
Keep quilting!

I think it's absolutely beautiful. I've made a few quilts myself, and like you, I advise people not to look too close! Hey, if they're going over your work with a magnifying glass, you've already lost 'em...so don't even worry about it.
Or else say, "I meant to do it like that!"

You said it best. I can't cut worth a darn either. I think it is in the stars kind of thing, some us aren't meant to cut with rotary cutters in life!

You all are too kind! There ARE plenty of mistakes....but I did learn a lot:D I am going to give this pattern one more try before I hang up my scissors.....LOL
