I really miss my art quilting! I pledged this week that I would finish putting together a quilt that I'm doing as a gift, so I could get it ready to send out for professional long arm quilting. It's a bit of a problem for my blogging because I don't want the recipient to see it and I'm spending all my time on it!
Well, I'm having such trouble putting it together, I've decided to show one block and vent! While I'm no expert quilter, I have made many quilts, but this one is defeating me. You can see that it's a shoo fly block in which I've changed the colors. I don't really know what it is called-- may have heard it called Lifesaver.
I have ironed the seams as opposing seams, but I'm having a terrible time to get the points of the half square triangles to match nicely. I've trimmed it, ironed it, pinned it, carefully and still end up ripping out several times. I have one more horizontal row to put together and then I must put the rows together which could be even worse. I'm going nuts!Any suggestions?
