A Thorn In My Flesh

It all began about six years ago......
pathetic....
I took a class at retreat....
I was the only one who signed up......
now I know why....
that darn "scant" 1/4 inch seam....
I tucked it away.....
for three more years....
pulled it out two more times.....
still no fun....
put it away until a few weeks ago...
determined to finish it and get it quilted.


I thought Friendie would help me show you the finished quilt....
but he was more interested in playing with sticks.
It was a pattern that was created right after Tri Rec tools came out.
I finished sewing the binding today.....
I am so glad it is finally done!

Congrats on your finish. I find that scant quarter inch is a really bad idea because there is no way to accurately measure it.
