there was clapping....

I said a silent prayer and held my breath as I laid out the top section over the lower section to see how badly they were going to match/line up. It was sheer luck when they spread out and the edge of the quilt matched PERFECTLY!!!


There was mass clapping!! It's a very big quilt! The one left side section isn't goofed, it's done on purpose. Cheri's quilt had the flying geese switched with the spacer strip as a quirk and I liked it so I left it. I won't do the center seam until after I get the 6" border done for the bottom. SO far...I'm liking it!
