All the cutting out got done and the squares cut top and tailed and re-stitched, then it was time to start laying it out
After laying out all the bits I don't really like it, there was still another three rows to be laid out but there wasn't enough room on the table.
these seven strips have been assembled, once all the strips have been assembled they will get stitched together then the borders can go on. When it comes to the top stitching I am going to go for a dark brown thread I think.
When I had all the squares laid out on the table Martin popped into the cabin looked at it and said have you got to sew all those little squares together? when I replied yes he then said but why cut up big bits into small bits just to sew back together? I don't think he understands patchwork.
I have been following the Sewing Bee on TV and thought Matt was a worthy winner, its a shame its finished, I have the Walkaway dress pattern on order along with some other 50's style dress patterns, I don't get many an opportunity to wear dresses, I would like to make a few then perhaps make the effort to wear them on days out.
Today I am going to finish the assembly of all these strips so I can move on to another project.
