I started it last year with the intent of it being a Christmas gift. Instead I made a bed runner quilt – go figure. This is much smaller 11 x 20, not sure why I thought I could and did get a bed runner completed and not finish this.
It was inspired by this book, though my squares are 1 1/2 inches square instead of an inch square. That was plenty small enough.
I also “cheated” because I programmed my embroidery machine to do the satin stitch edges. I did not have the patience to get it right otherwise.
It took some doing to figure out all the fine details to get it “just right” but once I did, it went fairly well.
Here is a close-up on one section.
Now it is time for thread, beads, buttons, yarns and other embellishments.
When was the last time you set aside a project for someone to start one more complicated to do instead?
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
