Quilt With Us

I've been on vacation this week and while trying to work on the house I also found time to try and work on my quilt.  The picture below is the never gonna make it again quilt on the new floor in our living room.  Everything was going great until I walked around and discovered that the backing on the far end of the quilt was not long enough.  I probably could have stretched the backing more but I wasn't in the mood.  I had already taped the backing to the floor and laid everything out and began pinning them together, not an easy task when sitting on the floor.  So now I've unpinned and folded it all away.  I have flannel that I will sew together and make a new backing for probably on my next vacation in may.

yeah, been there too. It will be stunning when you get it done but it is time to step aside for a while. When you get it out next time, you will know exactly what needs doing.

Send some of that steam my way will you Pam. I could have used it on my backing as well.  Expecting snow tomorrow afternoon/evening. If your steam is anything like mine, I would have nice dry roads to drive to work on.  Thanks barb and Handstitcher, I love the quilt too but after making the center block I just kind of winged as I went along. The colors look so much better than what the picture shows.

Yikes!  I agree that sometimes you have to walk away, cool down.  But, what a gorgeous quilt!  Can't wait to see it again when it's finished.

Oh, how frustrating!!! I love your top, such a clever design, and your piecing is excellent!

I did that same mistake recently and it ended the same way. I folded it up and am working on a different one. The steam that came out of my ears help press it however.
