If at first you don't succeed....

....chuck it and start over.

Yep, gotta start my little quiltlet all over again. When I opened my swap quilt from Kristin today, it seemed so large to me. So I got out my measuring tape. The instructions are for the project to be no smaller than 16" x 16" and no larger than 20" x 20". With all the frog-stitching and re-stitching and replacing, my little project now measures 14" x 16"--UNquilted.


Back to the cutting board.

Photos previously promised must be postponed.

Later, dudes, um, dudettes.

Oh Sandra, that's too bad about the quilt. I hope it's a pattern you love so it won't make the frogging too painful. Have a fabulous weekend.!

Ohh - I didn't measure mine before I sent it off . . . hope it's okay *s* Can't wait to see what you stitch up!

But the batting has already been trimmed down. I'd already basted it and was ready to stitch down the appliques, quilt the border and attach the binding.
