I put the final touches onto my On Ringo Lake quilt last night. I tucked in the thread tails from quilting, stitched down the label and finished up the binding. This was the 2017 mystery quilt hosted by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville and she generously provided us with another really great quilt design.
I think my quilt turned out amazing especially when you consider how much difficulty I had with the sashing. At some point, during the construction of the blocks and/or sashing pieces my seam allowance was changed to accommodate something else I was working on and it didn't get put back into the correct position. Add into that the fact that I had issues with setting the sashing strips into the correct orientation and you get the picture. My seam ripper had a really good work out and even then I have lots of missed intersections but it doesn't really matter. I think my quilt is beautiful. :)
While I was working on getting the top together I had the blocks and sashing strips all over my sewing room floor for quite a long time and every time I moved within the room they moved as well. At many different points of time I was tempted to just sweep the whole thing up and put it away for a very l-o-n-g time.
Now that the quilt is finished I am glad that I persevered because I love it. :) I think it is a such a great design and I love the block pattern even without the fancy sashing. I think I would like to make another quilt with this block design but with a straight setting instead.
