A Try Out ..New Halloween Chair Topper
So Joy and Alice have been planning a Sew Along Project using a Square-angonals pattern. I am just not real good with bias sewing. Not my thing and really do not enjoy it that much.
So I went and checked out the site. Found this freebie pattern on there. Decided to give it a try.
Pulled out a Thimbleberries 'October Glow' charm pack to use for my try out. Speaking of Thimbleberries so sad there will be no more. I know Lynette Jensen deserves to retire as well as the next person. Just sad to me as I loved her look, her books and fabrics.
( read edit) Simple quilting. Have not washed it yet and may not. I normally do not wash my decor items till they need it. Just my way. If this was a quilt to be used on bed then yes I do wash them to get that wonderful crinkle look and feel.
So no, I will not be joining the gals with this QAL using this technique. My try out was enough for me!!!
Just not good at it period. I do recommend you to try it though. You may find you really do it well and will enjoy the QAL !`
EDIT TO ADD:
From Sandi, Square-agonals designer:
So nice when I see someone use my Square-agonals technique and pattern. Love your fabric choices. Just so you know, the nipping off of the tips is part of the technique design. It is called the "Square-agonals Signature"
So I did not mess up after all!!!
