Well finally the moment you've all been waiting for.
I have to apologise for the quality of the pics, it is dark when I leave for work in the mornings and dark when I get home and today the day is grey, windy and wintery, not the best for taking photos.
The big reveal of my funny mismatched quilt. I'm going to share the love with you :)
Here is the original pattern, scanned from the book, it's so easy anyone could just about make it blind folded! (except me)
That is until I came along and stuffed it all up. I still can't understand how I managed to, I measured and re-measured absolutely everything. And almost everything was out. I can say with a certainty that this quilt is the biggest mis-match of a quilt I have ever made!
This is what it looks like now...
But you know what? I really love it! It shows off the brown French themed fabric right in the centre, and you can hardly notice all the "fix-up" bits of fabric I had to add.
And I decided to take the advice of those of you who thought I should embellish it, thanks for your ideas, I decided to cut circles from my left over fabric and sew them onto the small squares in the middle of the quilt.
I'm pleased I did, they look really neat.
On the back I used the last of my larger pieces of flannel fabric.
It's a very snuggly throw - A very small bear and I tried it out!
Have a lovely weekend my lovely friends,
