one that tries to make your life very difficult.
the machine tries to eat your fabric.
the thread breaks.
tension is adjusted.
points dont match.
and you cut the fabric wrong.
Luckily for me I over estimated how much I needed. And I mean OVER estimated!
these are the extra pins wheels I have made!! extra!!
Heres what happened.
see that 80 on the blue HST?
Somewhere in my thinking it meant that I needed 80 Pinwheels. That meant 40 red and 40 blue.
In reality (and I figures it out today) it meant 80 Half Square Triangles!! ONLY 20 pinwheels were needed. (10 of each colour)
I had made 25 red and 20 blue pinwheels so far.
I also had the fabric cut to make more!
(I am using Thangles to make the HST)
I have a lot of 3.5 inch cut fabric now.
This is how the quilt is looking so far.
My MIL want the pattern on just the top of the bed and plain on the overhanging sides.
I am over 1/2 done with the pinwheels then its on to sashing. The fabric they are laying on will be the sashing and the sides and the back.
