was this Christmas Wreath in 2009. I got the pattern out of a book I checked out of the library, and, unfortunately, did not document the name of the book. I have not been able to find it again. It was a hard way to start. All of those little triangles prompted me to write this "Quilter's Lament."
I carefully measured and rotary cut
All the squares and triangles (or so I thought).
I carefully sewed a scant quarter of an inch
Feeling sure the seams would surely cinch.
Why is it then my square's so askew?
Does this disaster ever happen to you?
Twirled like a pinwheel…sadly atilt!
Whatever made me want to quilt?
It's just a little project…no big deal.
But yet I started feeling full of zeal.
My hat's off to you, you quilters so handy.
If I could quilt like you, I'd feel so dandy!
