March success

I have achieved my goal for March for the One Monthly Goal linkup.
These four baby quilts needed binding and labels.
It is lovely to add them to the finished tub.
I am looking forward to selecting next months goal.

A massive fail

Well, my Monthly goal to finish this quilt has been a failure and a success. A fail, in that the quilt is not finished,  a success in that pattern and fabric will leave the house next week and be gifted to someone else if i can find any takers.
The centre is more or less ok. It was the big pieced diamonds that were the issue.
I think that they distorted when i was focusing on making sure every point matched,  unstitching and restitching.
From that point the other units wouldn't all join properly and sit flat.
I cut extra strips with the thought of perhaps replacing the big diamonds,  but i couldn't picture how that would look and feared it would be awful.
In the end i felt the best thing would be to see if someone else could make a better job that me, or put the fabric to better use.
