Well, I could not help myself. I kept seeing all of the 12 Days of Christmas quilts from the Temecula Quilt Shop blog . These little quilts are just so cute.
Originally I had planned to make one using Jo Morton's Crimson Bouquet line-golds, greens, reds so it would be a Christmas quilt. But instead I decided to use browns and pinks for a more Valentine-y quilt.
Here is my little top. I just finished it last night. It's not quilted and it's a little larger than I thought it would be. There's also some errors in it but who cares?
Finished quad 3 last night. Only had to rip a couple of seams and I only stopped because I was tired and started making mistakes. I really hope I can finish this top tonight! I would love to have it quilted by Monday and finished so I can see it on the wall and see if it measures up to my imagination.
Halfway there! I did rip out part of quad 1. A couple of times actually as I kept sewing it the wrong way. I did much better following my layout on quad 2. I only ripped out one seam that was really bugging me.
I'm pleased with how it is looking! I really love this pattern.
Stitched this up on my Featherweight (!) last night. I had to rip it out a couple times and darned if there isn't still a mistake in there! When I put it away last night I said to myself -it's fine, you can live with it.
Well, no I can't. See there are two places where identical squares are either adjacent or touching. So tonight I rip it out again and hopefully the material can stand it one more time!
