cabbage roses top finished
This is my "getting better" quilt, the one I started cutting so I'd have something easy to sew once I was recovered enough from my knee surgery to do any piecing. (Easy in that case meant having fabric right by the sewing machine and not scrambling around for the right scraps to finish the project.) It was a good project, because the drunkard's path units took lots of time to pin and not much time at the sewing machine.
Two months later, and I've got the center of the top done. There are 320 curved seams here -- I'm kind of excited about that!
I thought I was making a twin size quilt (that's what the pattern I'm following is for), but I'm not a big fan of borders. If I stop here and just make it a throw, it'll get a lot more use.
Now I want to make a scrappy drunkard's path. I could see myself wearing out my die by the time I get bored with these.
