FYI

If you are thinking about making a quilt & that quilt will be made up of 2-inch finished squares & you want that quilt to be fair-sized, not huge, just big enough to be a lap or nap size, please learn from my recent experience:

It will take you FOR! EVER!!!



(The color change you see is not a trick of your eye -- I ran out of my old Kona celery part way through & the new is a slightly different color. I'm hoping I can hide it a bit with the quilting. Fingers crossed!)

I think tricking the eye is one of the best parts of quilting. Don't think I'll be taking on anything like this anytime soon but thanks for the heads up! Glad you survived it and came away with an amazing quilt.
