A Dog's Breakfast.....

.....is finished.

This was never going to be a satisfying project once I realized the instructions 

were wrong!

See- No 3 says 'Choose a different print....' It should have said 'a same print'!!!

I am also SO over 'improvisational' piecing! 


All that piecing, pressing, cutting took SO long!


All for a quilt top, that to me, still looks a mess....


I tried to like it but honestly, I am not feeling the love.

I think I will finish it with a light batting....

for a work mate who is having a summer baby.




Or maybe I will just donate it to charity...

In the meantime it's being packed away....

Maybe the quilt fairies will work their magic on it and turn this Cinderella into a 

beautiful princess!


My thoughts today turn to the sad events of 9/11/01

  1. Oh doesn't that just make you scream! It is awful when instructions are wrong. Not only does it ruin the project but the wasted fabric, time and energy. I am so sorry :(

  2. What a pain when it isn't your fault! I would send pictures to the publisher - there should be compensation for this kind of thing!!

  3. I currently have part of a quilt top stashed under my cutting table waiting for those inspirational fairies you mentioned - if you find them sent them up my way. Its always good to extend yourself with something different. Take care

  4. I do like the colours and I am not much of a purple person. If you still cannot like it, I agree, give it away, and move on.

  5. I'm proud of you for not feeling the love but persevering anyway. I really like how you've set the blocks with the border. and the name makes me laugh so much!!
