This is where I am stopping with these blocks. It would take lots and lots to make a full sized quilt and there is a trememdous amount of rotary cutting, trimming, etc. I decided, although I love the blocks and how they come together, I really am not enjoying the process. So, this will be a very pretty tablerunner. I will put a border on it, quilt it and call it a day. Does this ever happen to you? Getting all excited about a project and finding it's not as much fun as you thought?
Now I am enjoying quilting the challenge quilt. Had no trouble putting it together (all the pieces were just pinned to a cloth base) - it went together nicely. I had to add one little strip to make one of the rows come out even. The girls who worked on my piece did a great job.
I am planning on doing a little embellishing with some pink buttons and maybe black ones, too.
