A patchwork project

Last Sunday’s patchwork course highlighted that my cutting and measuring skills need practise. Without cutting precisely, the kind of patchwork projects that I’d like to tackle, are going to look bad. My mistakes would shout out everytime I looked at the finished project. With this in mind, I spent time, this week, carefully selecting a project to hone my skills. Also, I needed the right tools for the job.

Everything is now in place, so I’m ready to practise.

I selected a sample quilt which provides plenty of opportunity to practise cutting out lots of pieces. It’s going to force me to be precise. By the end, I hope that I will have increased my confidence to tackle other projects.

I’m sure some of you can guess the project. What do you think?
