Friday Finishes!

It's been a frantic week, finishing up some projects and meeting some deadlines, with not much time for recording finishes here.  But despite all the chaos, I do have a couple of things to share.  My daughter saw a duvet cover on Pinterest about a year ago, bought a set of sheets and asked dear old mom to make one like it for her.  There was a real learning curve to this thing, most of it make-it-up-as-you-go-along, but it is finally finished.

The only way I could figure out to do the gathers, since the gathers needed to be independently gathered, was to cut a piece of paper the right length and gather both sides to the right length individually.  It was a lengthy process, considering that all 4 sides of each block needed to be gathered separately - 48 blocks times 4 is 192 gathered seams!

I have to say that I'm really glad this project is finished. It wasn't my April goal (wonder why I didn't think of it???), but it was on my list of 13 finishes in 2013, so that makes 3 finishes from the list so far this year.  I'll take that as a plus!

What have you been working on?

  4. That's really cool. Gathering is not my favorite task so that project makes me cringe a bit!
