Two steps forward

Hey all,

It is the middle of the night here and I am in bed waiting for the washer to finish so I can put my clothes in the dryer.  I was laying my civil war quilt out to pin it together last night to get it ready for quilting and I checked the size and then realized I had made it larger than the maximum size.  By one inch!!  ugh.  So I took it all apart. Repressed each block and shaved a few thread off each side.

Tonight I put it back together, but I have indigestion pretty bad, so I did not want to stop and lie down as I knew I would be uncomfortable.  So I kept working and put it back together.  Rearranged and tried to change that one block, but from a distance it still doesn't work well.  But it is what it is.  By the way it is 40% challenge fabric.

It is actually growing on me...not sure how to quilt it, but I have to decide quick!!
