1/3… Almost…

While I was waiting for my ordered fabric to arrive, I went back to my Mary Wigham. I’m on to the last motif at the bottom left corner, that means I’m 1/3 done on this piece – well, almost… For some reason this motif is giving me so much trouble!!!! I can’t remember how many times I’ve frogged it, and last night I had to fix the tail of the bird 3 times and still didn’t get in right!!! I was sooo hoping to finish this before the fabrics arrive so I can go back to my quilting!!

And of course these beautiful fabrics arrived today, which made me feel much better when I saw them. I did a little web surfing last week and was so excited when I found these fabric from the same 1974 series of my tumbler quilt~~ So I’m going to set Mary aside for the moment and work on my quilt again, just to change the scene a little bit and hope the frog will be gone when I get back to it.

  1. Let me know if those frogs disappear all on their own! I can use some of that help myself. Gorgeous fabrics - I'm anxious to see what you're going to do with them.

  2. Mary looks great! You know those little girls made lots of mistakes in their samplers, so you are probably just channeling Mary!

    Enjoy your pretty new fabbies!

  3. I have had the same problem with my Mary. A couple of motifs have given me a hard time and everytime I abandon it only to pick it up weeks later. I haven't worked on her for a few months now. Good luck with the quilt. Thanks for sharing.
