Square Value sewn up

     Finally, the quilt Square Value is all sewn. It was a bear of a quilt to sew. It was a kit (!) and I bought it because I loved the fabric. However, the pattern, sealed inside, revealed that all the diagonals were to be fused and zig zagged down over the slash seam. Not happening on my watch. I inserted the strip into the seam which made me crazy because no matter how I tried, I could not get the two halves to line up. I tried marking, pinning, holding, etc. I just have to live with the boxes not matching up. Grrr.
    I tried to get a full shot outside, but my clips will not hold the quilt up, so I have to retool and try again later. This photo is on my design wall, which is not big enough. When I shot the photo, I noticed a peculiar shape at the bottom. On closer inspection, it was Tugger the quilt cat behind the quilt sleeping with his paws hanging out.

Congratulations on your persistence and this finish! It looks great even with Tugger's napping self.

You learned new ways to do things with this quilt. As long as it worked, it's fine. Now to quilt it.

Wherever it is mismatched, I can't see it. It is an attractive quilt.

Tugger knows his (her?) paws are just the right color for this quilt :)

"Square Value" looks great to me and I don't see any "mismatches" either - but I wonder if the designer had the same "matching" problems - it might be why she decided to "fuse" them in the first place - just a thought - ;))

I like that last quilt, and LOVE the fact your cat Tugger is hiding behind it!
