I tend not to try new things because I'm afraid they won't turn out well or that they'll be too much work. This week I tried a few new things and I'm so in love with them I think it may make me more brave in the future!
Well, that's me this week. I'm excited about what is happening here and thanks for stopping by! I'm linking up with WiP Wednesday.
|Here's one from the front. They are not at all perfect but they are pretty adorable and turned out WAY better than I expected but just as I hoped they would. I'm testing this pattern for the lovely Kitty at Night Quilter. I should be available soon and I'll share the finish this week!|
|I also get nervous changing patterns around. I worry that I won't have enough fabric or that it won't look good. I have no problem making them bigger, I do that all the time, but changing an aspect makes me worry that I'll end up liking the original better. This particular pattern wanted half the smaller squares to be four patches and the other half to me a single piece. I wasn't feeling that so I changed them all to a single piece and I think I like it better. I hope I don't change my mind! I hope to finish this one as my October ALYoF goal.|
|Now this is not something new I tried. It's a fabulous bundle of fabric! The Intrepid Thread was having a flash sale and I took part in a big way. Several of these are bindings for upcoming quilts, two are backing, and the rest are for fronts. I wish there was more time in the day to make all the things!|
