I'm Marching Along Just Beautifully

Well, things are going along just fine on Lizzy's Parade.

As I said before, the instructions were REALLY bad, so when I sewed the triangles together, I just halved them and matched the half-way point then sewed them together. After I finished sewing most of the blocks together, it dawned on me that the point where the 1/4" seam intersected was at a different point at each of the two ends of the triangle, so they should have been matched up differently.

Oh well...live and learn. I don't think...in fact I'm quite certain...that no one at Fons & Porter bothered to make a sample of the quilt. There were no instructions at all. I had actually contacted Cherri of Cherry House Quilts and she said that she had no input on the writing of the instructions, so that explains a lot.

Here's what I have so far...

Isn't it just adorable???? (Sorry for the tooting of my own horn. I just think it's going to be so cute!)

I'm a little bummed that the points are all messed up, but I decided that I'm just going to have to let it go. What's that saying? "If you can't see the mistake on the back of a horse as you're galloping past, it's not worth worrying about!"

Plus, my daughter certainly doesn't care. She's just excited that Mommy is making her a big girl quilt.

She has a quilt that I made her when she was a baby...which she still sleeps with every night.

But, this one is going to be a small twin-sized quilt, so it will fit on her new bed in her new room.

On another note, I'm thinking about putting up a Mr Linky for everyone to blog about what they are planning to work on over the weekend. Would anyone be interested?

Judy's so good to give us a Stash Report on Sunday and a Design Wall Monday. I thought maybe we needed something to blog about on Fridays.

Let me know what you think.
