This is another UFO which I put aside having becoming unmotivated when the cats knocked all my carefully sorted half-square triangles onto the floor. However, when I picked it up again a few months later I really enjoyed finishing it.
The quilt is from a pattern designed for the Bread ‘n’ Butter range of American Jane fabrics. I love the bright colours and the quilt makes me smile every time I look at it.
I started this quilt after a frustrating attempt to make a mariner’s compass block. I started off very excited with visions of a glorious quilt full of curves. On the third attempt, I did eventually end up with a finished block which I was fairly happy with; but I had to do a lot of unpicking and resewing to get there. The picture below is my second attempt.
After grappling with the curves, all I wanted to do was cut and sew some straight lines: hence this quilt.
