Yesterdays oops has to do with the completed flimsy. I had all my crab apple blocks ready to put together and had chosen a fine beige print to use for the narrow sashing. There are 10 blocks in all, I had counted 7, it wasn't only one of those oops moments but also an "eh duh" moment, I seem to be having a lot of those lately. I'll put it down to the amount of power Serge's I'm having. Sounds good, huh? So back to the sashing, I had all the sashing cut and on 7 blocks, went to put it all together and that's when the light bulb went on, darn missing sashing for 4 more blocks. Ok time to get the trusty seam ripper out and put it to work and remove all the sashing and start again, with a different fabric. So today was the final step, put the last row on, and the last borders. For some reason my camera's not behaving itself and showing the colours not true to colour. The blocks were stitched on Kona lemon, and I used a small beige print for the sashing a brigher lemon for the inbetween sashing and the kona lemon for the last border, so my apologies for the poor photo quality.
All that's left now is to decide how to quilt it, and of course get it pinned out. I decided to change the name, you can do that when it's your quilt.. from Garden Path to In My Father's Garden.
My final oops was an intentional oops, it happened on Monday and it only took a press of the keyboard and voila I'm now the owner of Kimberly's quilt pattern, Sassy Sixteen. Talk about fast service, it arrived in today's post. Thank you Kimberly, I'm looking forward to putting this one together.
