Thank you all for encouraging me to move forward with this quilt... after a couple days of soul searching, I decided that so many experienced crafters can't be wrong! Besides, I really do love this quilt, and I'm now quite sure that its my love for it that is making me second and third guess myself...
Nonetheless- I went ahead tonight and sewed those blocks together and now it is looking just gorgeous!!
So thank you all for your support, opinions and comments. I appreciate them all so much!
Oh, and when is blogger going to come up with a fix and make it easier to actually reply personally to all the great comments I get?
