The Duplicate Quilt [twin sized]

Next up is this monstrosity. The duplicate quilt. That's what I like to call it.

I ate an absurd amount of gummi bears while piecing it.

Mostly because it took 384 four inch squares. THREE HUNDRED and EIGHTY FOUR.

Totally worth every little square.
Originally I had planned on straight line quilting it, just like the original version, but I kept getting these horrible puckers, I got so pissed off, I ripped out 10 lines of quilting and then decided to quilt it in the meander pattern. Then my top thread kept breaking and I was at my breaking point, when I rushed to Joann's and the nice woman there gently suggested that I adjust my tension.

Sometimes I really think I have no idea what I am doing. None.

Is the original for sale ??

I will pay the going rate AND even throw in a tube of Preparation H.

You make me want to hurt you. In a pull-your-hair-kind of way.

The original lives on my couch now. I would make you one, but I think I have just about used up my scraps. The 384 did me in.
