  1. Addison’s quilt is closer to a finish! Hurray! Roseanne I can feel your pain with those borders. I had the same thing happen last week on a pattern test I was doing. It took me 5 times measuring, sewing, ripping and then measuring again, only to do it all over again, and again and again. Needless to say the quilt still doesn’t have the borders (which I was adding just to make the quilt larger because I wanted it to be larger). See you on the next post to see if you are getting the QAL caught up and if you finished the toppers. I’m still playing catch up on posts after my lost week last week.

    The ballerina quilt is getting better with each post!!! I’m glad that the borders finally worked for you. And the yellow? It’s perfect!!!!!

    Starting a new project is always fun! You could use it as a leader ender. The Ballerinas are shining!! You will feel such relief to deliver it to your special little;)

    Quilting math is definitely not my favorite thing, especially if I’m tired or frustrated. I love your stars and am so glad you finally figured out the borders. That fabric bundle is indeed gorgeous, and I love forward to seeing your progress with the Two by Four QAL project.

    Hi,
    All your projects are awesome…even the new one you want to start…love fabric.
    I always see new projects I want to start. That’s what my post is about today,
    way toooo many projects. Have a great day!

    It’s amazing how that math works, and then magically things come together! It will be adorable and Addison will love it!! Good luck on your list.

  7. The ballerina quilt is looking great, Roseanne! I feel your pain with the measuring – I’ve had the exact same thing happen. So glad it all worked out in the end! Happy finishing!

    Love that ballerina quilt and the stories that go with it. Yeah, those borders always give us a wakeup call just when we think we are on the home stretch. So glad you got them to behave! And the quilting will be lovely, I’m sure. I put a quilt back on my bed last night. When i drove home from the gym this morning my car thermometer said it was 39!! I had a hard time leaving that nice warm bed to go to the gym! But heck, you are out of yours much earlier than i am! Hope the QAL goes well and you have lots of fun!!

  9. Linda says:

    Oh I’m so glad you tried that 3rd time! “Butter” sounds like the best description ever for fabric. 😉 That is a gorgeous bundle, and yes I agree, some QALs are just meant to be.
    Thanks for linking up to the (late but still made it) To Do Tuesday!

  10. Whew! Glad it worked the third time! I thought maybe that only happened here! It’s precious!
    I’m going to check out the QAL, but have no intention of joining in! wink 😉 Good luck on this week’s list!

    I’ve used that quote by Gladys Taber for years. (I recently joined Friends of Gladys Taber. Visiting Stillmeadow is on my bucket list.) I’ll look up the Two by Four QAL.

  12. One of my majors was Math in College (double majored)…ummm…Quilt Math is a whole different beast. I think it could qualify as a legitimate “New Math”.
    HA!
    Ballerina quilt is such fun! I always like it when yellow ‘works’ in a quilt. As you know, it can be uncooperative!!!

  13. Wendy Tuma says:

    Ah quilting math.- fun, isn’t it? Are you going to do the small version of Two and Four, or the larger? I’m over here, doing the happy dance jig, because I’m actually keeping pace with a QAL. Imagine that. But then, I haven’t finished it yet and who knows when it will get quilted. I can’t wait to see your finished ballerina quilt, and more twirling from Addison 🙂

  14. Have fun with your new project, Roseanne! So glad that third time was the charm with the borders. Isn’t it crazy how that can happen sometimes? Have a great week.

  15. Yup…I’ve been eying that Two by Four QAL. But I’ve already got a squirrel, or two, to finish. Ha, ha! 🙂
