Friday Night with Friends

I had a good night, working on my Lancaster quilt.....still a few more diamonds to go on the first border...the pattern isn't very user friendly....

 
Thought the border was finished alas the pattern says 8 diamonds, but 10 are needed grr....glad that Im starting to work on some of my UFOs thou...

  7. So annoying when you end up doing the work when following a pattern. It is looking fabulous though, the extras will be done in no time :)

  8. Love the red and cream and it is looking wonderful. Nothing worse than when you think you are almost done...but NO! It is going to be gorgeous.

  11. Oh no, I should have sent you the link for when I did that border, sorry :( also be carefully when cutting the border fabrics, especially from a border fabric as the requirements listed wasnt enough for mine and border 7 is to be cut at 3.5" (not written on my pattern). I had to play and cut mine thinner to make the clam shells fit. Definitely not a user friendly pattern :(

  15. I have not started this BOM quilt, though yours is very inspiring - but I feel increasingly nervous about doing it, given all the difficulties you've had with a pattern that is not user friendly! GRRR indeed. Will make sure I keep referring to your blog when I do start it! Thank you for sharing how you overcome the difficulties.
