I finished 2 throws I had started as an on line 'class' last summer! Yeah!!!! I signed up for a Summer Camp given by Gyleen Fitzgerald: www.colourfulstitches.com.
(Both backings for these throws look very similar, in fact when I wrote the 'label' on the blocks they were positioned the same.)
I learned I am not too thrilled with doing a mystery quilt because (after the fact) I like to see what pattern I am making before I put all that work into it. On top of things, I made 2 because when I cut out the first one I didn't care too much for the color of the center block, not pizzazzy enough, so I cut out another one. However, this will work because I have 2 sons and I will give the each one a throw for their cars as Christmas gifts. If I get the gumption, I will make some sort of case for them. I usually make the throw into a 'Quillow' but did not feel like doing that this time. I might change my mind, I have a little time yet...
How many times has this happened to you? You would think by now I would not do this, but every once in a while it happens to me. I am quilting along and notice I have run out of backing!!! Thankfully this throw is meant to be used: grass, dirt, football game bleacher padding, etc., so I was not upset. I just sewed extra fabric where needed and kept on quilting.
This only happened on one of the throws as I made sure the second one was positioned properly!
