I have been humbled!

I was feeling really cocky about having quilted the six cousin quilts in less than a week, but then I started No.7. I was quilting along and had completed 24 of the 168 blocks before I realized that everything had shifted drastically about 40 degrees. I am still ripping out the stitches. Each one is a humbling experience.

How did this happen? Lack of pinning and attention. I had my MP3 tunes blasting and was singing at the top of my lungs to Amazing Grace when I spotted the error of my ways. Love to get lost in the music, but......


  1. One more try to comment then IGIVEUP. Your story reminds me of the Anderson's speeding ticket years ago. Way too much gusto from the backseat/backup singers as they cranked up Jesus Loves Me! Robin, will happily help with stitching those borders if you are looking for a hand--and a needle. This may come up "Mark" but it's really Sue. His sewing efforts would prove the distinction.
