Unpick that border!

Hi y’all,

I’ve been unpicking the border on the pug quilt today. The pieced border that I had originally planned looked awful. It’s all part of the job. However it meant that my measurements were now completely out of whack. I spent last night with a calculator, a pen, and a ream of paper trying to work it out.

When I got up this morning I realised that all I had to do was add an extra 1/4in to one of the inner borders and all was fixed size-wise. Duh. Sometimes you can’t see the wood for the trees.

Today I’ve sewn 45 blocks for the new border and it is the happiest quilt I’ve made by far! This one’s a good one!

A couple of days ago I posted that I was going to sell some of my sample quilts. Thank you to everyone who messaged me. I’m sorry I haven’t replied to some (a lot) of you yet. I was completely taken by surprise at the response I received. To be honest I was unprepared for it and I’ve stuck my head in the sand a little.

I will make a list of names, in the order you have contacted me and when I price everything up I’ll message you.

  1. Love your work Toni, I’m looking forward to adding the Pug Quilt to my long list of projects!! Haha xx

  2. Oh how well I understand your pain filled calculations, having had many of those “DUH!!” Moments! :0) I think we try to be too clever for our own good when simple is usually best. I spent the afternoon working out requirements for a new design … Details, details! Buy as much fabric as your budget allows & then play, I say!! :0P Looking forward to the pug unveiling. Bear Hugs!
