12x12x12 Portfolio ChallengeApril 16, 2007
My design this month began as a pencil sketch in February.
I then machine pieced it out of hand dyed cottons and machine quilted it.
I am very happy with it, even though there are a few things that I would do differently were I to do it again. I didn’t take the time to plan out the piecing before I started piecing it so I ended up with some inset seams which I do not like. I think I could have avoided those if I had planned ahead. So next time I will plan out the piecing a little better. Also, when I started quilting it I figured that it was too small to need to be SID’d. As a result, it does not lay as flat and smooth as I would like. So next time I will definately SID first.
I had so much fun with this one that I am planning to use this same design, with variations, next month.
