Don't let it's cuteness fool you ...
... this is the quilt from hell - the Titanic of quilts! From beginning (in about 2008, I believe) to finish, whatever could go wrong - DID go wrong - sometimes more than once :D This was the quilt that started my years-long absolute hatred of Babylock sewing machines, as my BL just could NOT function with any competency during any part of it's construction. Lordy what a nightmare. I actually CRIED multiple times during construction, out of sheer frustration. I finally gave up and put it in a box for 5 or 6 years, only to pull it out last year to catalogue it for my UFO completion attempt. I didn't get to it until this year, and I'm ashamed to admit that it was only about 3 - 4 hours away from being completed. I can't even remember all the problems I had, but when I pulled it out, I didn't really see any evidence of hair-pulling-out-worthy errors or screw-ups. (@#)*$&@)#($& !!!! I finished it today, and despite the fact that it looks pretty darn cute, it will ALWAYS be the quilt from hell in my mind :D
