Well begun...but not half done....yet.

I spent the last few evenings cutting out pieces for a new quilt project:
The squares are made in four quadrants:
Here is the finished square. You may notice that the two green triangles in the upper right quadrant are not correctly placed. That is the one thing I don't like about doing quilts with triangle pieces--I seem to make a lot of those kind of boo-boos, and spend an inordinate amount of time ripping out...
I did fix it, and now have twenty-four more squares to go. The quilt will be called The Long and Winding Road. It just feels good to be doing a new project.

Barbara - The quilt will be gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the first few squares with us. I'm still planning on learning to quilt this year. Your inspiration is great!
