PULLING OUT A BURIED OBJECT!

So I pulled out this Christmas mini quilt that I started several years ago and figured out that I made the first 16 blocks (arranged like an advent calendar) and then quit.  The pattern and fabric were still there with the blocks  so I decided to give it a finish!
There are still as many pieces to cut as in a full sized quilt
 but they are just small and fiddly. 
 I got the pieces cut out and then stitched them together.  

 
Not so happy with the results.  I remember why I put it away.  That 1/4" seam allowance which looks so small on a 6" block is really big on a 1" square!  I might try it again today but no guarantees!

  1. That looks like a Dear Jane. Those crazy seam allowances are a nightmare on it too. They are so beautiful when they are done but what a pain they are to work on. I have to be in the right mood.

  2. I say do it all - they don't need to be perfect! It's wasted if it just sits there untouched!

  3. It is very beautiful though and looks perfect to me.
