It was near impossible to match the stripes and diagonal seams AND this is all sewn on the bias and I wasn't too careful about the stretching on the bias. AND the most important, I want to do the pink foam board insulation design wall like someone posted the studio link and I want to do the design wall spray basting. NOW! Okay, I really sound like a 2-year old.

The freudian term is "regression in service of the ego." We all need to let the inner 2 year old out on occassion. Personnally, I would suggest stuffing it into a bag for a couple of months and then look at it again.

I'm one of those who thinks it looks good! I'm with QM....stick it in a bag and then put it back up on your lovely new design board. Find something "less expensive" (aka cheap) to border it with. You might could sell it on ebay for someone else to quilt...lol. Ask Redmatter about that!

I REALLY like that design Luvs. Any seams that aren't just perfect won't show much once quilted. Plus..when working on it you are usually looking at it so close up. As a finished quilt it won't be scrutinized the same way?
Do you have a lot of pins? You could pin the blocks together in rows, add a paper label to each row so you know where it goes, and pull it out and finish it later.

I think I'm going to do that AOL. I'll clip together each row and go from there.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Spray basted on my new design wall. For anyone who uses the spray baste, it was really slick and fast. Lots less lifting and smoothing of wrinkles.

I did pin up newspaper to block over spray and that was a pain in the neck. I am just ready to toss a set of sheets but am thinking of cutting the flat sheet in 1 yard strips and serge the edges. It would be easier to pin that on the top and let it fall in place.

I did do one thing a little different. I pinned up the backing, then smoothed on the batting. I pinned across the center and pulled the batting down and spray basted the top half first. Then loosely pinned up the bottom half and sprayed, then smoothed down.

I'm happy to hear the spray basting worked so well for you. Pinning the center and doing a half at a time was such a clever idea. Your room must be a good size? I think if I tried it here...the fumes would get me? azn

I don't have any allergies that are stirred up with the spray and don't have asthma, but I do open a window when I'm spray basting.

The room is my daughter's old bedroom. It it really a big room at about 11 x 15 or 16. It has 1 wall that has nothing on it. Well, it didn't but I moved that item. I have another spare bedroom the same size, but there is a crib and a daybed in that room, so no-go on the big blank wall.
