Quick post re patchwork

This is just a quick post for LittleGem and MaryPoppins, cos I'm tired and my hand is aching. This is how I built up my patchwork, after the fab mitmot posted this ink for a tute. It's such fun to do. Pictures of the cushion I made from it to follow (but not tonight, LOL).

Ooh some lovely scraps Lace, thankyou for posting. Yours definatly looks more successful than mine. The trick is you need bigger pieces the more you do it. Looking forward to seeing the cushion ...no pressure!X

Oh its lovely Lacey, your pieces of fabric are scrumptious...I might even have a go at one of these, think they're great and don't look too difficult for a non sewer

Lovin' your work xxx

MaryPoppins said...

Brilliant Lacey :)

Gem is right regarding the sizing, I found too I kept forgetting where I was in my circle :)

Anyhow my prototype is off to you, as I think it actually turned out quite sweet, hope you like it :)
