The Quiltmare was a Nightmare

We've hit a few snags in our latest quilt - including running short of fabric twice - so we have called a halt to production as we reassess and see where it is headed.  Polly is tired of jumping through hoops to make it come together.
This is not unusual in the development of a new pattern because it requires lots of tweaking to make things gel, and in the simplest way possible.  The latter is key to a successful design.  As Einstein said, "make things as simple as possible, but no simpler". We are working towards that end. 


  1. It's good you have Polly to bounce ideas off. Perhaps you will both be inspired by taking a break from it.

  2. Polly, you look great in red and white!! lol Karen, I'm sure you'll make it all come together..
