So, to be totally honest, I started this project with the fabric from Purl Soho before I started the quilt. I saw the pattern in Stitch magazine and thought it would be a great first attempt at patchwork and quilting. The whole project came together really quickly, until it came time to hand-stitch the inch marks.
Weeks ago I carefully stitched the final touches on, hung it on the wall, and wondered why I was suddenly 7 feel tall. I counted and counted and finally figured out that I had put just 10 inches in each foot (*&^%*!!!). Ugh. Out came the scissors and then the project sat. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it again. So finally, over this long weekend I worked up the nerve to finish it. With just one little misstep it’s finally finished. Or close. I’m supposed to stamp numbers every 12 inches, but I can’t decide if it needs it and then if I should stamp them or hand-stitch the numbers.
