At Long Last

This project was in American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, February 2013 issue.  Yes, 2013!  Needless to say, I’ve been working off/on (mostly off) this project for some time now!

why we fell in love! ha!

my pattern

Yikes – another case in point of just exactly where does the time go?  I digress; the pattern was originally designed with a finished 4-inch block and someone decided to change the size of the block from doing 4 to a 6-inch.  I guess it was easier to do 6 instead of 4, but the setting triangles were all pieced and we had to refigure that and for some reason that was a challenge.  I guess the “end game” was not taken into consideration.  Ugh!

The swap was with Ivy, Julie, Jerryann C, Phyllis H. and myself way back in 2013!

We got the swap complete and then what to do with those setting triangles.  Well math isn’t my strong point, I did a practice block and got it figured out.  What a relief, even the corners were pieced, but I figured that out too!

Well I got to a particular point, I even got the sashing pieces attached to make rows and for some reason got bagged up again!

After working on and finishing my triple 4-patches the other day, I got the bug to get out S’mores once more!  Maybe this time a finish was around the corner?

S’mores out of the bag

I got the project bag out of the closet the other day and laid it out on the floor to see where I was on this.  I had all the pieced setting triangles done in a bag and the floor is big enough to see placement, so I got them attached to the rows and began working on the sashing. I worked on the rows, one by one and it is finally DONE!

I feel like singing “At Last”!

If you want to feel somewhat accomplished, I highly recommend that you dig out an unfinished project and get it completed! It is pretty exciting and very liberating!

I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads.  Love and hugs,
Ronda
