Random reflections on quilting and other creative endeavors
Friday, April 12, 2013
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!
