Our Singapore quilt group has quite a revolving membership, most of us being expats on varying lengths of postings.
We try and make a block for those leaving – which can take many forms. One of our group is leaving this week. Being a typical quilter, she found a design she liked on the floor of a shopping centre in Singapore!
The idea is great. The design looked good.
I printed out the pattern pieces; began to look in my pile of blue & green batiks –
I tried to get it right – 4 times!! Something was definitely screwy somewhere and going back to basics with the calculator and ruler still did not help. This is 3rd attempt….
Although I love the colours in this one, something bizarre happened with the pinwheels in the centre and instead of being 12.5” it came out about 10.5”
By this time I was running out of the fabrics I really liked, so I ditched the pattern and worked it out myself. Size is ok, all the points meet, but not sure about colour placements.
Oh well, sorry Tiiu. At least you will have a block tomorrow. But I’m not happy and will persist until I produce the stunner!
