I can't leave well enough alone. I got the back for my butterfly garden fence quilt finished last night:

butterfly garden quilt back
I'm really happy with it and I can't wait to finish the quilt. But - instead of working on sandwiching and pinning this quilt today, I decided to cut a star surround 48" block. Why? Why did I do that? AND, to add insult to injury, I cut the pieces wrong. I didn't really pay attention to the fabric requirements and cut the fabrics wrong. DUH!

So... I'm putting the star surround away - just for a little while, until I can get the fabrics together for it, properly, and cut it right, paying close attention...

I'm gonna go out to the apartment and get the batting out and sit down on the floor and pin baste my quilt so that I can start quilting it tonight (which is what I should've done hours ago...)

Linking up to Lee @ Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday.



  1. Oh it's awful when something like this happens. Hope you get to do your quilting before you pick up your star again... Good luck. Visiting from WIP

  2. Your quilt looks cute! Good luck getting it quilted and basted. I hate it when I do stuff like that. I think we all do it at times!

  3. Your pieced backing sure is pretty! And I can totally relate to your mis cut. It happens to all of us once in a while. I find if I am tired or distracted, that's when I make that kind of mistake. But don't let it get you down! Hope you can get your garden quilt basted and start on the quilting. Looking forward to your fab finish!

  4. I know why!! because basting is the absolute devil. that's why! I hate that happened to you! Can't wait to see your butterfly fence quilt though!
