I’m still working on my Talkin’ Turkey. Remember last week when I told you that I was on hold because I didn’t have enough string triangles?
Well it looks like the problem is going to continue to plague me.
I had 30 blocks this far along when STOP. I have six more blocks that need side strips sewn onto them.
UGH. I think what happened is that when I started making this quilt I thought I would make it like the pattern. Then when I picked it up again I thought I’d make it in a 6 x 6 layout verses a 5 x 6 layout. That leaves me always 6 blocks short of finishing pieces.
So that left me making more of these….
It seems I’ve already made a trillion of these but alas, I was back to make more. This time I anticipated the shortfall and made enough so that I’d have enough when I added the other side pieces.
Little by little, it’s happening. My goal next week is to have the blocks finished. I sure hope that happens.
I loved this quilt when I saw it and am still in love with it today but my oh my, this is not a quilt for the faint of heart. Finishing this quilt will be closer to finishing two regular quilts!!
You can find me right back here next Wednesday. I’m hoping those blocks will be finished by then…fingers crossed.
