So, I collected the fabrics and went to work. Many of my friends ask, "how long did it take you?" Well, this quilt, at approx. 39"x48", took one solid week with no time spent on any of my other on-going projects. It took me a good afternoon to decipher the cutting instructions and sew the first basket. I found the instructions to be disjointed and unlike any of my other favorite patterns and projects. There was a huge disappointment and moment of frustration one night when squaring off the first block to the required 5 1/2"...I realized my points were being cut off!! The flying geese would be perfect...everything would be perfect, and then I realized my scant quarter inch seam was too scanty!! Arrrgghh! Well, I learned a valuable lesson! ...and that's one of the fun things about it! ... after you get over the initial let down! :-))
But, I love the finished quilt!
