The story of this quilt is that I picked up a bunch of fat-quarters from Joanne's to practice lining up corners.  I could consistently get one side of the nine-patch lined up nicely, so I called that success. XD



This is the top before I fixed the parts that I didn't notice were wonky the first time around.  Oh quilting.  Grin





I had my own machine for this quilt, and I worked on the initial stages with a lot less supervision than my first quilt.  Therefore, I made more mistakes initially and learned how to work them out later in the process.  I will be much more careful cutting the fabric and piecing the blocks of my next quilt.  I like education when it yields pretty lap-quilts!  Cheesy

that sewing machine looks familiar...wait, so does that couch...KT?

There's nothing better than surreptitiously checking craftster at work and seeing your college roommate.

The quilt turned out great!  I was kind of wondering what the finished product would look like last time I saw the squares, but this exceeds expectations. 

You done good, madame.

Looks like you accomplished your goals. It is beautiful and you got to have fun making it. Most of the time anyway... Your intersections look really good.
I've been working on the Mystery Quilt-along. Unsewing is part of the game, huh?
