I have been stalled with my Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll mystery quilt since step #3. Partly it was because of finishing Christmas projects, but partly because I thought if I was going to string piece some blocks, I should be working on this quilt.
here to see the first blocks). I have been working on it periodically over the years and received some string scraps from Julie earlier this year that I been using up and really want to finish this quilt in 2011.
There are 2 reasons why this thing is taking forever to finish.
1) When I picked up the project after a long hiatus, I made a big mistake. Can you spot it in the block on the bottom right??
here. And I get a lot of this problem...
No matter how careful I am, and how I fuss around with pinning, it seems impossible to match up these seams when joining up the long rows. So I have decided to just accept that "endearing quality" about this quilt and just get it done! This project is on my 2011 UFO list so look for more postings about it next year.
What's on your design wall as we come to the end of 2010?
