My first proper patchwork project
I had loads of fun with this, couldn't wait to get home from work and get going on each bit. I stalled a bit when it came time to quilt - should I put batting in, should I hand or machine stitch on top?
In the end I decided not to put in any batting cause it's a cover for a pillow full of feathers and I wanted it to be good and squishy. I did a bit of hand stitching on the top - but only one line cause I was way too eager to finish it.
I used fabric I bought last year from Patchwork on Central Park and all up it took hardly very long at all.
What I learnt during this project though was that when I sit down to work on something I rarely sit for more than 20 minutes max. I'm always up and stirring dinner or up and getting something from upstairs or up and getting materials for the next project (even though I mid current project right there on the machine). Attention Deficient Crafting indeed!
