Patchwork delight!








The patchwork delight title should be patchwork delight and with a oopsy! 

I know, lots tiny squares going on and more to come! These hand-quilting pieces are just nice to have around. I can make a few stitches between this and that. Yesterday, as a day off from work. I was able to spend a great afternoon with a cup of tea and enjoy the hand-quilting time. By 7p.m. I had all the 5 pieces done and it felt so great.  Since the assembling part will not take too long to finish up I though I'd have Miss Maggie's patchwork coat done in no time.

Then each patchwork piece got traced with the pattern used erase water marks on then I  sewn the baste line around the marking lines; quickly I cut off the patterns as it is getting close to the end.... Then there's a big SCREAMING! OH MY GOODNESS!! Little did I know I should know better!!!! The right side of the front coat needed to be reversed! I always done that! I always forget to reverse the pattern! Then I tried to fix the right side coat with the crazy idea of patch on more pieces.. it didn't work 't. So I will rework on the right panel of the patchwork coat with a bit self-talking!! It should be good if I start the patchworking tonight and work on the hand-quilting tomorrow. Maybe I will have a patchwork coat to show you next week?

fingers crossed!

  7. I feel your frustration, I have made similar mistakes. The te wasted fixing it or re-sewing is so frustrating. Nice to be in good company with this.
