Working on Circa 2016 in 2017!

So my excuse is that I was busy!  Honestly from September to December my work and personal life was flat chat.  So I stopped working on my Circa 2016 quilt.
I had made the hour glass blocks, but they were too big.  Easy peasy, took a larger seam allowance, problem fixed!  Yet the points still look good.  These might become my favorite block!
I tried to replicate the placement of the blocks as per the finished quilt on Temecula's blog.  
However colour and tone were sometimes an issue.  As much as possible I tried to let "it just happen" in a haphazard and scrappy way.
I got one side border completed and was feeling very pleased with myself. 
I failed to notice the side border was short by two blocks!  Some quick unpicking and that was fixed.
I realise the fat borders are too big, but the setting triangles were too big, so pattern requires you to to trim - fine for fat borders, nightmare stuff for loooong borders!
Happy quilting Sue.

  1. I am sure you will figure it all out, as you usually do, and it will soon be finished! Raining here now, but not windy.

  2. I got the center part of this quilt made before I bailed on it. So glad you've made such beautiful progress. I've seen so many finished and they're all beautiful!
