Nantucket Done!

I spent all morning unsewing and resewing and unsewing ....

It's done!


It was such a fun, easy quilt to make.  The problems were mine, and I take full responsibility for them!  In my next sewing room, I will definitely have a design wall.  All could have been avoided if I had one.  I see the flash washed out the colors on the bottom there.  I'm certainly not a photographer.  Heck, after making this quilt, I'm beginning to suspect I'm not even a quilter! 

For all the trouble I had, I still love this quilt, the pattern, the fabric, everything.  A huge thanks to Thelma for encouraging me to make it.

I think Penny likes it, too!

This is one of my favorite quilts I've seen this year (and I've seen many beautiful quilts!) Your fabrics are just perfect and I agree it was worth every minute you spent repairing. Happy Thanksgiving! Florence

Your quilt is lovely. Your sewing and unsewing made it all worthwhile. It makes me feel normal when others share their goof ups along the way!

I was nervous for awhile. So glad you finished it and are happy with it. Love the little star blocks!

Yay! Nothing like a finished top to make all the sewing problems fade to the background! Congrats :). I'd like a design wall too.

I just love it!!!! My friend sews in her dining room and her husband made her a huge design board to go on one wall. She covered it in fabric that matches her paint color so that you can't really tell it's there unless she has her sewing out. I'd make one if I had the room. I can send you the pattern if you want me to. Easy peasy!

It came out lovely!

It is a beautiful finish! I challenge once in a while is okay, right? Your end product looks like it was well worth it.
