Always show your workings out,
so I was taught at school.
Here is how I worked out Rashidas pattern for the sew-along,
one that Rashida herself is taking part in.
As I consider myself still a newbie to
machine sewn patchwork
there was quite a lot of head scratching.
My runner is based around the vintage flower fabric,
which lent itself quite nicely to the rectangular pattern.
I think my runner is a fair amount bigger than the original.
There were a few erm mistakes,
like sewing one rectangle the wrong way round,
catching a fold of the patchwork
under the foot of the machine,
and as above not lining up the strips,
which wouldnt normally be such a big deal,
but I didnt want to cut the flower in half
when attaching the binding.
So yes I have been a good girl,
(make sure you unpick the right bit!!!)
