...joys and opportunities in belonging to this wonderful world of on-line quilting x One is that you are invited to step out of your comfort zone and .... pattern test xx I have done this a couple of times .. with varying degrees of fun and sucsess!!
When I saw this one I thought ..."why not?"..
WELL .....there was a lot of maths for one thing!!! I had various false starts and struggles! THEN I gave up on the ALGEBRA!!.. well thats what it looked like to me! AND.. did what I should have done in the first place and ...went with the chart!! I KNOW!!!!... but the idea is to test the instructions!...
... by the way it looks crumpled because GUS....
came to be my companion and sideline cheer-leader .... and sat on it!.... SAM...
...could not stand the swearing and left us to it!! lol x
EVENTUALLY .. I had a quilt top..
still not right ... but a LOT closer.. to the origonal pattern x ....when you see the blocks in the wrong place while looking at the pictures ... it is ...TOO LATE ....to go back and change it!! I was just happy to have finished it xx
AND .. Adam and Caroline (son and partner just want something to keep their feet warm xx bless them x)
I started quilting with a variagated black and white thread .. very nice .. it twisted and broke and became a birds nest ... despite everything I tried!!!! SO I changed to a black and red varigated .. not so pretty ... that .. never broke or misbehaved ONCE!!!
THEN I added some applique over the worst bit .... NO I AM NOT UNPICKING!!!!!
At last I have a finished .. well almost just got to sew down the binding .. little quilt x Feedback sent .... on to the next project xx
Hope you have fun to-day
