so this is me admitting defeat. not because it cant be done only because i physically couldnt finish it. i put the top together beautifully, its about single bed topper size in a roman coins style. the problem came when i pinned the three layers together to sandwich. because im doing it the cheaters way - think how youd put a quilt cover on a doona, you have to layer the batting, the back and then the top -right sides facing. but i stuffed up and put the backing on last, so when i went to turn it right side out the batting was on the outside and the backing was in the middle, OOPS.
so i then had to unpick it and repin it by which point my back was in major pain and still is. so now i have a quilt with 2 sides together still sitting at my machine and im in bed trying not to cough or sneeze cuz it hurts even more when i do.
i will finish it...in a few days i guess when i can sit up straight, stupid back!! grr
