Two - Zero - Niner

It really wasn't such a big deal fixing this quilt.  Plus I know myself well enough that not fixing it would have driven me crazy until the end of time.   I did enjoy the comments I got from quilters who would have probably not noticed the difference or not corrected the top.  Lucky you for being so casual and easy going, I envy you, and I'm guessing you'll live longer than me.

So here it is,

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 209
The pattern is Bits and Pieces by Midcoast Cottage Design ( I did change the pattern just a tad)
The fabric is an assortment of Carolyn Friedlander's fabric for Robert Kaufman
It finished at 79" x 85"
It has approximately 792 pieces

I've been obsessing about the quilts still on my 2017 To Do List, but today ran across a bit of advice and it said when your To Do  list gets you down, sometimes thinking about your Done List cheers you up.  I could not agree more.  If I don't finish another quilt this year it's already been a very rewarding, fun, and productive sewing year.  But really, how much longer can I put off that Double Wedding Ring quilt, tick-tock, lol.

  1. very nice quilt - so simple looking but yet isn't

  2. Lovely quilt and a very true saying. You have accomplished much this year so far. Pat yourself on the back.

  3. Your Year of Thelma has been a good one! Love this quilt. I would have had to fix it, too, but I didn't notice it until you pointed it out. It's perfect.

  4. I love the border fabric you used! And yes on the double wedding ring quilt. I started one before I got married, back when you cut the pieces with a template and inset the corners. I have about 10 corners to set in and it will be done. Only 23 years in the making...and I still love the quilt, but would love it more if it were finished! ;)

  5. It is fabulous. You need to be happy with the quilt so I am glad you fixed it. A double wedding ring has been on my list for a long time.

  6. It turned out beautifully Thelma! I'm sure taking off the borders and re squaring etc was not that much fun but I'm glad you're happy with it now. I agree with others about the double wedding ring quilt. I would love to see you make one!

  7. I love how you reworked this pattern - it looks fantastic!

  8. What a gorgeous quilt. I'm not sure how you had to rework it but this finished one is absolutely stunning.
