Wonderful Progress Until My BooBoo

I have been sewing the cornerstone strips and the blocks together on my QOV project and had to stop before finishing for a few reasons.  First, that center star needs to be embroidered with some personal information of the giftee. So that middle row is not sewn to the other rows and the star is unsewn to the adjacent blocks.  But I think it looks pretty nice.

Second, this cornerstone has been unsewn and resewn twice and needs to be done again.  Can't do it today because of a little accident.

This is my finger that was cut on a broken mug.  If it doesn't stop bleeding soon I'm off to the ER.

But I'm still a happy person because this quilt top is almost finished.  Believe me, with this top the rest will seem easy. 

God Bless you (and my finger:)

That quilt top is amazing! I love the blocks with four stars in - but I bet they were a right fiddle!

You'll straighten up that errant corner post as soon as you have all your fingers back working!

I hope that you don't mind me saying that I am glad that you worked some little floral prints in along with the military centrepieces - for my money, it makes for a good balance.

Ouch. I hope it's getting better now.

Your quilt is great, someone's going to be very happy to receive this.

Oh, I like your quilt so far but I don't like seeing your finger all bandages. Hope you don't have to go to the ER.
