Daft Zebras - the Flimsy!

Here is the completed "flimsy" of "Daft Zebras." It is 32-1/4" square, but I think I need to add a bit to the sides.The two brown lines on either side of the quilt are crochet cotton tied to weights that I have pinned to the ceiling molding at the top of my design wall. They hang away from the wall, allowing me to determine if the various blocks in the quilt line up vertically. They also help me to quickly and easily determine if the rows are the same width.For the weights, I used the first small heavy things I could lay my hands on. Being a Geek, these just happened to be two VGA-DVI video adapter connections.

Great idea and LOVE the quilt. I think all the changes you made were brilliant. I know it's frustrating to work hard on something only to find out that it's not really working for you, but to keep going and persevere says a lot about you. Some of us would have chucked the whole business!

Yeah, I know..... I still owe a buck. lol
