was my first project,
and used the full-size block version of the pattern.
When I tell you that I am FPP challenged,
I'm not sure you realize quite how bad the situation is.
I sewed so many fabrics wrong on this,
one would think I was in a sitcom!
I sat down at my machine,
after *just* telling a friend that I'd had to seam rip
2 out of the 8 seams I'd sewn,
and darn it if I didn't mess up my 9th seam too!!
And on it went...
I sat at my machine laughing at myself,
really - I'm hilariously pathetic when it comes to FPP.
I'm telling you - it's just all backwards for me.
|I applied the binding to the back, then sewed it down on the front. By machine. With sparkly thread. Who am I??!|
Tyler and Brandon asked what was wrong with the pattern
that I was having such troubles,
and I said, "Nothing!
It's a great pattern,
And everything fits together just right,
I just have a major mental block when it comes to foundation paper piecing!"
And ya'll thought I was joking....
I eventually managed to get all of my components sewn,
and then sewn together into a block
(never mind that I sewed them together wrong.
I decided I very much liked it that way ;-)
I added a border
and turned my block into a 16 inch pillow cover
to go along with the quilt
for my sister :-)
thank again for the opportunity to test your awesome pattern.
I'm sorry I'm a blight in the world of FPP
