BEHOLD! The antithesis of mindless, relaxing sewing

OMG!!! This is a freaking nightmare.

I was feeling so confident this morning! It looked so pretty up on the wall! I just wanted to dive in and zoom-zoom-zoom! There should have been a Surgeon General's warning on the front of this pattern. Holy moly!

I have twelve more seams to sew, plus the setting triangles. How am I going to get this done?? It is NOT going back in the box.


  1. I take it that in your case, diamonds are NOT a girl's best friend???!!!

  2. I think it looks beautiful!!!Keep at it, I am rooting for you to figure out the seams. Looking forward to seeing it DONE!

  3. I know it must be an optical nightmare working with all those diamonds, but your layout really does look nice. Good luck!

  4. I like it, but I feel your pain. Stretched bias. Oh, nooooooo. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Lane

  5. Oh that I see it I think I have this pattern and fabric I bought as a kit!
    Maybe I'll give it as a "gift" to one of my quilting buddies :0)
    Oh thank you for this warning....thank you

  6. It looks amazing!
    I love that..."surgeon general's warning" :)
    Still giggling about it!

  7. Just keep thinking how awesome it's going to look all finished and plug away a little at a time...we're all rooting for you :) You can DO it!!
