Many years ago, in a previous life, I used to work as an intensive care nurse. To brighten up our stressful days we decided to have a cooking competition once a month.
(Who would have thought that idea would take off? )
My first effort was a batch of scones, which turned out like a plate of rocks!
I 'entered' them anyway thinking at least they would make some one elses look good.
The judge, one of the bosses, said they were just like his mum's and I won!
In that spirit I am showing you this.
Flush with my recent success I have begun a new quilt.
I started with the backing and chose a couple of solids to co-ordinate.
I did all the arithmetic and cut out the whole thing!
Problem number1, I ran out of the salmon fabric.
Solved. I ordered a bit more on the internet.
I did a couple of blocks and then realised a had cut the big green triangles 1/2" too small.
What to do? No more green either.
I will not give up....
in the end I unpicked the blocks and cut them down
from 12" to 10" blocks so that everything now fits.
What do they say?
Measure twice, cut once?
