I'd like to put "lovers" after the star crossed, but that really wouldn't make sense! Anyway, I'd love to share with you my almost finished Waterfront Park quilt top! I finished the 20th and final block for it a few days ago, but have been busy with orders, so didn't get around to putting it together. Until today...

I am completely and utterly in love with this......and am so glad that I didn't take the easy way out like I was contemplating, and stuck with my original plan.
The plan that looked somewhat like this. You know when you know what you want to do, but really have no idea how to make it happen? Well, you do, but your lack of mathematical skills get in your way? Yeh, that. Lucky for me, after an hour of trying to work out those little crosses, I threw my hands up in the air (and no, I did not wave them around like I just don't care), and sent out an SOS to my Wombat Stew gals. Alyce the maths genius came to the rescue and told me exactly what to do and how to do it.
And these little 3.5" babies were born.
It all went rather smoothly-ish, until the last row was being sewn together. Which I won't show you because I'm still trying to work out whether I can be bothered unpicking the row, then the little block and then trying to make it work better. But let's just say my intersections aren't matched up in two spots, and it will more than likely annoy the shit out of me when I next pull it out, and will more than likely be fixed. Or not. Who knows?
Sooooooo, this bad boy will have to wait until next week for more progress - for we are off to Lorne tomorrow until Sunday! My brother-in-law and his lovely fiance are getting married on Friday, so we're making a lonnnnnnng weekend of it! I. Can't. Wait.
I'm linking up with W.I.P. Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced - You can too!
