They deleted your post? Not cool! I hid the page. My family that was in town went home, so I am going to spend the day getting my craft room in order and working on some quilting!

Whew, I had to have other priorities last week so this quilt got pushed to the back burner.  This morning I decided I was going to get caught up.  Step 2 and 3 are now finished but if I was writing the pattern for this quilt I would have done it different.  I like speed piecing and after finishing Step 2, I can see how it would have been very easy to speed piece rather than do traditional piecing.

Can't wait to see what Step 4 and 5 are!

I so agree with you, homerof2!  But, I think she wanted it to be a surprise!

I managed to get steps two and three done but not step three...I think it is safe to post pictures of step two and three, but really, they are not anything to look at really... Cheesy

I think I'm just going to wait and post a picture when I'm totally finished the front - after giving everyone else a chance to finish first, of course.

ha ha homerof2--your manners are much nicer than some of those quilters in the forum...I was a bit aggravated, but like my hubby said, just don't peek! Cheesy  Once I read my clue, then I snuck over and looked... Cheesy

I've finally finished clue 2 for my quilt, but the Hello Kitty one is lagging behind at only about halfway done. I have discovered though that I hate pressing seams open, so I decided to press the Hello kitty to the dark side since I'll probably stitch in the ditch.

Noushi--I hate pressing seams open as well...I also think that the seam is not as strong than when pressed to one side--it is easier to pull open...I plan on quilting around the bumps with a simple pattern anyway... Cheesy

I pressed all my seams to the dark side... Cheesy

I've been pressing them open because I thought I'd try actually following all the directions for once....but I'm not happy about it.
