In December, I showed you this photo
of a patchwork I was making as a Christmas gift. Sadly, after smashing my head, early December, I got behind schedule with sewing and had to put this to one side. It didn’t matter that much since the person it was intended for didn’t know I was making a patchwork for her. She received a hand-made purse and a cheque instead, and when you’re a teenager, money is always welcome ^^
Anyway, I decided to get back to work on my Bandana fabrics, going along with my initial idea of chevrons. A lot trickier to make with QSTs than I had thought (yup Avis, I know you warned me, but did I listen? of course not).
I didn’t take any photos of the catastrophe along the way. At one point, I felt like throwing my fabrics in the bin and admitting defeat but they were far too yummy for that, and I’m stubborn. So I plodded on . . . making the best of a bad job . . . and in the end, it didn’t turn out as bad as I had expected!
It still isn’t finished, as you can see. I’ve got to back, quilt and add my binding . . . but in the meantime, this colourful top will be folded and put away . . . and then finished off in time for Christmas 2016 ^^
