It's the biggest thing I've ever made, and I am very pleased with myself.
I bought the fabric on ebay - 4 metres of flowery polycotton at £3.50 a metre. (From this shop if you're interested.)
I cut each metre into 16 pieces and ironed them into lovely 24cm square pieces.
(That took a long time...)
Patchwork would usually be much smaller squares but I was being completely realistic about both my sewing skills and my concentration span.
|Highly detailed plan ;)|
After much sewing I eventually had a very large square made up of 64 flowery squares.
There is a slight mistake in the pattern, but there are no prizes for finding where it is. (And while we're on the subject of imperfections we aren't mentioning any slightly wonky bits in this project, thank you.)
|Wadded with polyester and backed with a king size flat sheet.|
And here it is on my bed; it is making me very happy!
And it's also Handmade Thursday; more of that at White Lily Green.
