WIP Wednesday: So close, yet so far

Remember how I said I was waiting for my 3 yards of Chocolate Kona to arrive to start working on the top of my argyle quilt?

It arrived....I just can't get it. I forgot to put a note on my door so its living at the leasing office downstairs until I can get it. Which is probably Saturday. Backburner-ed again.

On the tree skirt front, I realized that did not cut enough squares for it! I think. It's hard when you don't know exactly what you're working with. So I added in another lighter fabric.

And now it is 11 blocks by 11 blocks square instead of 10 by 10 and hopefully it won't be too small (again.)

And now I have to sew this thing together like a puzzle because I was too excited previously and had put some of it into four patches that are not lining up now that I added in the extra fabrics. Time to find my seam ripper!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!
