I just took this personality test at mypersonality.info. It was kind of neat, it said that some of the people that have the same personality are Andrew Jackson, John D. Rockefeller, Sam Walton, Lucy from Peanuts, and (oh dear!) Rachel Lynde from Anne of Greene Gables. Oh my! Anyways, I thought that was kind of neat, although I don't know about that Rachel Lynde thing! :)

1.) Hope it fixes itself during quilting
2.) Alter a few key pieces - If I do this, I will free motion quilt it on the inside of the quilt and then outline the colors along the lines. Since I won't be altering the outside diameter, I could still have lines coming out, or I might free motion on the outside as well.
3.) Take a slightly bigger seam allowance on each and every piece. This would take forever, but it might be the best option.
I don't know what to do! Argghh!!! I thought this quilt was supposed to be easy!
Let me know what y'all think! I would really like to get this project finished up.

This is a really neat picture! Of course, I'm a bit biased since my little sister took it, but oh well. It's still a good picture! I can't believe she takes these with a point and shoot! It's amazing. I have the same camera, and I can't get these kind of results with mine.
We got back Saturday night from Fort Smith. That was where the robotic competition was held. We won 1st pace in the t-shirt competition, but we placed 17th overall. It was a lot fun, even though it was a grueling three days! I got to stay in my fancy black dress all day since I didn't have a chance to change into anything else. I even wore it to robot check in! Those heels just about killed me though! :-) I felt really young though since most of the other "kids" were seniors in high school. A lot of them were 19 years old! I was so sick of junk food, that I just wanted a big salad. If you ever go to Cracker Barrel, I highly recommend their BLT salad with ranch dressing. It was SO good!!!!
Okay, onto the WIP (Work In Progress). I can't remember if I mentioned this, but I'm working on a color wheel quilt from the book Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts. It's off to a good start, I have all the color pieces put together and have started chain piecing them together. I'm hoping to make this a stash quilt, but I think I'm going to get some white for the top. I think that I'm also going to put some more of the white on there to make it look good on a twin bed. Okay, scratch that, I just looked up the dimensions for a twin size quilt, and I think that might be kind of complicated. So, I'll just make it the regular 56" square. I might hang it on the wall instead. Or, I might leave it in a circle shape, and make a rug out of it. I don't know yet, do y'all have any ideas? I will try to post pictures when I get back home (I'm at the library now).
