Love it! What a great tip.


Hard to believe there is not a curved seam in this quilt--what an optical illusion!

The quilt is really beautiful, all of those points must have been time consuming, but what an overall effect!


OMG, i can't believe there are no curved seams! What a gorgeous quilt. Great job and i'm looking forward to seeing it when it is quilted.


Gorgeous quilt!! Congrats on your finish. :D

Shelly will do an awesome job. Can't wait to see it when it's finished!


Wow! Nice points. I love that pinkish color block. Good idea for the tray. Great weather here too-record breakers all this week!

I made that quilt last year and I love how it turned out too. Your observations were great. I never cut borders according to patterns because mine are always a bit different so I always measure my finished quilt top center and go from there.


Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh, that is an amazingly beautiful quilt - hard to believe there are no curved seams, it makes a gorgeous design! You must be so proud hon, this is fabulous!!!!


Lincoln's Watch is GORGEOUS!!!! I love it!!!


Great colors! And I was looking at how good your points were before I read your comment on how they didn't match up - we're all so critical of our own work because yours look very nice! I know I have a lot of projects planned but now I want to make one of these too!


That quilt is BEAUTIFUL!!!! I love it, love it, love it. And it will look absolutely gorgeous on Aunt Marcella's daybed. She might actually come back and haunt you, just to see it! ;-) (She'll want to touch it, cover up with it, and just look at it; it will be so beautiful on her daybed!) So I guess it was meant to be that you should have such a beautiful antique to embellish.


I also really like that idea of using the silverware trays to keep your fabric pieces organized. What a great was to keep a lot of small pieces together and yet in sight all the time. No wonder you get so much done; you are so organized and together! I wish I had thought of all those ideas when I was working on my quilts. It would have saved me a lot of time and trouble.

You did a great job on this quilt. I love the old fashion charm about it. Nice review, especially with the helpful hints. That will make it so much easier for someone else.


Wow! What a great quilt. I love the pink and brown. I never would have believed what the blocks in the quilt looked like if you hadn't shown close ups. It looks like lots of curved seams. Just beautiful!


It's so beautiful! I can't wait to get my hands on it! It'll be so fun to quilt. Your silverware storage tray idea is really good. Now I wanna rush out and get some silverware trays, cos I need more of such stuff to stack around my studio. Heaven forbid I'd make do with what I have! How did I miss so many posts you've done lately? Guess I haven't had much computer time -- you've been so busy!


Such a gorgeous quilt! I bet Shelly is going to knock it out of the park with her quilting. Love the way the blocks play and create new blocks in this pattern. You did a fabulous job putting this baby together!


Love your quilt! I can't wait to see it quilted. It does look like there are curved seams. Really pretty!
The trays are a great idea! I will have to get me some just for quilting.
I nearly missed this post ...I have been gone for a couple of days. So glad you mentioned in the pen post ... need one of those too!


LOVE the quilt top!! I can see that it looks intricate with all the matching...and I have to admit that I would have a tendency to let the seams fall where they may, too! I'm thinking with all my eye-guessing that this quilt may not be the one for me to tackle! LOL!
Great tip about using the organizers.

I made this quilt last year and as I was making it I kept thinking what ugly blocks they were. My friends made me put 10 together to see the design and then I really loved it.


Thanks for the review; I'm having all of the same issues you did, due to the VERY scant instructions, so I appreciate your words of wisdom. My blocks are also coming out a weird size (allllmost 6.5" but not quite) and I was worried til I read this. Thanks again!
