I've been pattern testing for an Instagram friend. She's slowly setting up her own pattern sales business. She'll be concentrating on paper pieced patterns and they are not for the faint hearted.
The Starburst pattern I tested comes in two sizes, 8" blocks to make a mini quilt or 4" blocks to make a table runner. I chose the 4" blocks which makes a table runner 28" x 12" before borders.
As you can see from the photo this design has a lot of seams. It wasn't hard to sew just fiddly and I had to concentrate. Although there were no written instructions Melody provided two versions of working diagrams so I could see how it all fitted together. All in all it probably took me two days to put together. It's definitely not a beginner's project.
The time has now come to quilt it. I've struggled with how to quilt it but I think I've got a design I'm happy with. After drawing out the quilt many times on scrap paper and doodling I've come up with this.
That's it sewing wise. I will have a finish to show you on Thursday. That's my day to take part in Lorna's Dog Gone Cute blog hop.
I'll leave you with some pics of the spectacular sunset we had here in Wales yesterday
