So in my new "permanent" sewing area, I am working on a Mod Sampler quilt I've mentioned before. I'm really having a time and a half--probably why I'm just a wanna-be quilter and not a REAL quilter. I am half way done piecing the top of one quilt (I've cut out two--each daughter wanted one). Cutting the quilt out took forever, and I have miscut pieces (both sizewise and numberwise). I have missewn pieces (which explains the seam ripper near my right hand at all times). I'm embarrassed to say I've had to resew a nine-patch . . . TWICE. That ironing all seams open is for the birds. I think there is something possessing this project--because the directions on the internet could not be clearer or more precise. I chose this pattern for that reason.
