Another nickel quilt from Pat Speth’s book! The pattern is Dutchman’s Puzzle, and I just finished this quilt top a couple days ago. It measures 55 x 69 inches. Again, I used old scraps that I just wanted to
get rid of use up. I didn’t even enjoy the process of sewing the blocks and thought for sure the top would be a real loser. But look at it now … it just all came together once I added the two borders. The outer border is a red paisley that I am loving. I’m thinking this may be one of my favorites once I finish quilting it!
UPDATE: Sold flimsy top on Etsy in December 2010.
I purchased the kit for this table runner a few years ago. Well, I finally got around to finishing it up yesterday. It went together fairly quickly as it is a “quilt-as-you-go” project.
As easy as it was, I still had a problem and almost didn’t finish it. The middle square is supposed to be centered, and as you can see from the picture below it is not! After sewing on all the “log cabins” (strips), I realized the strips on one side were too short. I was too
lazy frustrated to repair the damage so I just trimmed the edges as-is, thinking this would be another loser project.
However, once I finished binding it and putting it on the table, I realized it wasn’t too bad after all. Besides, you all wouldn’t have known there was a major mistake if I hadn’t told you … right?
Am linking up again to Amy's Sew and Tell Fridays … what sewing project have you been up to?
