|this is the block on the top left of the quilt (left panel)|
|These pictures were taken yesterday evening... you can see a part of my sewing table!|
|And so I needed to cut two long sashing strips. So glad that I had enough fabric left over....|
|See the difference?....|
My husband was sure that no one would have seen the mistake... That's really sweet of him, isn't it?! His idea would have saved me a lot of work. But I'm sure quilters will see it. And if they wouldn't, I would always know about it... so I just had to repair the block. And now I am grateful for the result. It was more work than I thought, because once you rip open so many seams, all those uggly little threads start to appear... So I roller-cut all the edges again, getting rid of all the loose threads. And a lot of pressing with my iron was part of the job too of course. But hey, we're used to that aren't we? LOL.
Oh well... one is never too old to learn! I hope I won't make this mistake ever again.
Top right block of the right panel
In order to finish the the top right block of this panel, I needed one more sampler block. So I appliqué'd 2 butterflies wednesday. They are part of the design of the fabric that I am using as the basis for this quilt. It's an indigo and cream fabric I bought at Ikea in Delft years and years ago. This is how the block turned out:
|I hand-embroidered the butterflys' antennae.|
Back to sewing now...
Bye for now!
