Patchwork (still) in progressTuesday, February 09, 2016
A year ago I'd sewn together 206 hexi flowers for my patchwork quilt.
Today I have sewn 308 of the little blighters together, I've added 67 so far this year which seems pretty good going considering for the whole of 2015 I only added 35. What can I say? I go in fits and starts.
It's really starting to feel like I'm on the home straight, but as I get closer to finishing it I'm getting nervous about the final stages of turning it in a quilt. What if I make a real balls up of the edging and ruin my efforts of the past two years?
I've seriously contemplated paying someone else to back it and edge it.
But I know if I do, I'll regret it, it would no longer be all my own work. I couldn't take full credit.
I'd always be saying, 'yes I made it but someone else finished it for me' and thinking 'because you where too much of a chicken to look the thing in the eye and sew on it's edging'.
I foresee some YouTube tutorials coming on.
It's time to put on my big girl pants and do this.
(Wish me luck)
