I typically don't make quilts with a lot of little pieces. To be honest, I don't always have the patience needed to be exact in my piecing. But, when you're sewing a gazillion bits of fabric together, exactness counts.
I had to do a LOT of trimming on this one and that's purely due to my own piecing skills and not the pattern. The pattern was a cinch to follow and I'm actually debating about making another one, only bigger. Like, king-sized bigger for my bed.
I can't even fathom how many 3 inch squares it would take to make a king-sized quilt. I seriously love this pattern and I have another idea to make it just a bit different, so a couple more tries at this quilt is more than likely.
In the meantime, I can cross another item off The List and get this quilt wrapped and sent to a sweet little three-week old baby boy. Welcome to the world!
