Saving Noah~

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that I've been working on Lynette Anderson's free Noah BOM for the past year. To my horror, when I went to assemble the finished blocks, the top half did not fit as they should. Those patterns did not print off correctly or something; it never occurred to me to check. So, I was left to figure out a way to make them work and "save Noah." What a challenge! The lady at the fabric shop said, "You need coping strips." Yeah, right!
Coping with Noah
Well, many strips later, it is put together and sashed with the whole thing bordered like each small piece. What's the next step? A trip to the quilt shop..... Oh, darn.

Hey Judy! Wow! I think Noah can consider himself 'saved'!! And I like the term 'coping' strips - sounds much more professional than 'fudging it' which is what I will be doing! Tee! Hee! Hee! Your little qilt is looking great - well done!! Bear Hugs! KRIS
