Increasing the rectangles
You can see the detail here on the dark blue stripes in the middle. I actually remembered to do three sections, can you believe it?
I know, I was surprised myself!
You can see the striped fabric on the back here in this picture a bit better.
Did you have any issues, Kathy? Why yes, I did! The bobbin ran out after only 1.5 rows, grrr! I made two, this will not be enough. After I changed the bobbin, the thread kept breaking. Double grrrrr. But it settled down and I was able to finish.
I like this fabric so much more, it is an Alexander Henry and has no direction, I can cut strips any which way. Emily wanted the straps and borders to be all the black and white polka dot but there wasn't enough so we are using 3 different fabrics which I think is super fun! It makes me so proud of my stash.
I hope to finish it tomorrow, it is going really quickly. I also want to hem the first one and do one more row on the blue quilt. And I want to call Shelby and wish her a very happy birthday, 23!
Plus, the green fabrics arrived for the new bedroom quilt.
And I have the new fabric for the bedroom drapes. Yikes! So much sewing to do. I love it!
