Chuck-A-Luck

The day got away from me again and as I sat down to start working on this block I started to laugh.  Six months ago I would have freaked out over a cutting instruction with an 11/16" and a 1/16" to cut, but tonight it was no problem.


About half way through I started to get a bit nervous about lining up all the triangles, and just when I was about to give up, it went together.  I'm not saying it is perfect, but I had one of those moments where I realized without a doubt that patience and perseverance will get a person a lot further than hopelessness and despair.  I've had a bit of a rough week this week and it is interesting that while working on a quilt block it became so clear to me what I need to do with many things.  This is a 10-inch block and is number 207 of 366.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Quilts, like people, have their own strengths and weaknesses that contribute to the whole....which is going to make you an awesome quilt! Congratulations on winning through and such a great attitude!
