If I had followed the pattern, I'm sure this project would have gone much more smoothly...I chose a border fabric, created a second quilt on the back, couldn't keep my lines straight (thanks Barb for helping me), sewed a strip that should have waited until a vertical strip was sewn first, blah, blah, blah. I also should have appliqued the road sections before I sewed the rows together. Result: lots of unsewing and bad words. Note to self: Think this through!!
The pattern is Cars on the Road by Susan Marth and the fabric is Oink-a-Doodle-Moo by Jenn Ski.
|Love this border print!!|
|Front - needs lots of hand work|
|Top section - of course a tractor and a fire truck|
|Bottom section - police car and another tractor|
|Back - panel and another fabric from the collection|
|Original pattern - note: no border!|
All in all, I am pleased and the end is in sight. Not much else going on here - lovely weather. Got in a little golf and a wonderful anniversary dinner on Friday night at the Douglas Lake Bar and Steakhouse in Pellston, MI. Check out the wonderful work of other quilters on Judy's Design Wall Monday. See you next week with the completed quilt (fingers crossed).
