...my father loves good ale
and so do I
(has anyone ever heard that nursery rhyme before? Me neither. It's not exactly catchy, is it?)
I got the roundabout quilt top finished on Saturday, but had to wait for a less windy/rainy/miserable day to take a pic. It still blew about all over the place and took me forever to get the darn thing to sit still to get a picture but eventually I got there. Phew.
The pattern is actually bigger than my finished top - once I got the squares laid out I realised it was getting far too girly so I gave up and this is about 50ish x 60ish inches instead of the twin size Amy has on her blog. Hopefully someone will have a little baby girl before too long and I can gift it to them, because I'm not sure it would do for a boy. Oh well. For now it will hang on the fabric closet door with the other tops waiting for basting and quilting. I need to get the damn spiderweb quilt finished before I start anything else.
For those of you that are too afraid to try curved piecing, give it a go. I think once I get it quilted the puckers will be invisible, and it was really fun to do. And fast too - this came together in a couple of days without me really thinking too much about it.
Start with 4 blocks and if you hate it that much you could make a nice pillow. Honestly, it's not as horrendous as you think.
