I am very happy the decision was made to go with 4" blocks and modern Moda fabric. So much easier and quicker to do. It is a fun project now and before it had turned into a difficult nightmare of sorts. Quilters have a way of not wanting to abandon projects they have started, but I got over that a long time ago. Quilting for me is supposed to be fun and if a project turns into something decidedly not fun, I move on. That doesn't mean I won't find a way to recycle it, but I won't keep torturing myself with it. Below is a rather bad photo of row no. 1 for this project. I got caught up on it this week because I have a nasty cold and have felt pretty much like not doing anything, so I sat and hand pieced. It's always a good day if you have a needle in your hand!Brackman project for now.
