-your son pooping without whimpering in pain for hours first beforehand. yes!
-reading a few chapters in a good book on a rainy day - where it slowly drizzles all day long...
-Your husband making tacos for dinner
-finding an unexpected color for your border (dark green with some blue swirls, who would have thought?)
This is the first pieced border I have ever done. As you can see, its only half finished - it takes WAY longer than a regular border.
Borders are hard. Its hard enough to measure and get it to be straight and not pucker and not cut off your star points (which, I am happy to say, I saw at the Quilt shop many sample quilts hanging with cut off star points...made me feel MUCH better). But, its even harder to get the four-patches to line up (relatively) with the corresponding quilt. You have to take them in, let them out, annoying! But, I got pretty close, and am happy with these first two sides.
