Trial and Error

Admitting Error clears the Score, And proves you Wiser than before. Arthur Guitermane

A friend wants me to make a black and white quilt for her son. So I have this simple 9 patch black and white block with a dash of colors. I was thinking it would be brighter and since she doesn't want any red on it so I go ahead on cutting and sewing frenzy


and another phone call came and said it should be just black n white and grey. So I had to abandon the 9 patch block and changed it to pinwheel (yes, my favorite). And since I cut black and white fabric into 5" squares I just don't have the heart to cast them away. So I used the same 5" and sewing away. 


After 20 blocks I realized that this will be too tiny for a big quilt. Too much of work. I will need like 80 blocks (Dear God)..but it's so CUTE! I love working with HST but 80 blocks is almost overwhelming for me as a daring beginner quilter :D And after lots of thinking, I decided to make the same pinwheel pattern but with…

Finally it's done :)

Remember this ONE? Finally I have done it. It takes rather long :)  As usual I'm using flannel  batting since I don't get a proper batting as yet in this corner of the world. Well, I believe in using what ever available at hands now. And to be frank, flannel batting is not bad at all, though it's a bit expensive -_-
Here it is sitting prettily on my swing :)

It has scrappy backing and scrappy binding too. I thought of doing free motion quilting but I'm not confident enough to do it in a bigger quilt :D.

More photos you can see them in my FLICKR.
Until then...Happy Quilting ^_^
