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.

Very very pretty, but I can't see one of these in my future, too many curves. You did a amazing job.

Wow, lots of curves and it looks great. I'd make it into a throw for sure! Love the muted color. Makes it look like an antique.
