Doing another pattern test for The Quilt Pattern Magazine. The pattern is called Crystal Facets, is a paper piecing project and is written by Barbara Douglas.
I started with this;
And continued on to this;
Such a sweet basket of fabric goodness!
I continued on and was really pleased with the pattern. It was so well written I didn’t do my normal dyslexic trick of reversing pieces; not even once, and I only had to use the seam ripper once before I got to this point;
I had gotten to the point where the blocks were assembled and I was starting to put the rows together when my surgery was re-scheduled and I had to stop sewing. This projects has officially become my first and only UFO for 2019. I am so disappointed but have accepted the fact that manipulating fabric is out of the question for me for a few months according to my doctor and therapist.
In the meantime, I will continue to keep doing whatever I can. Every day that brings me a new accomplishment will bring me closer to quilting again. So far I have managed a bit of knitting, I washed half the dishes yesterday and today I did a load of laundry and managed to fold it! I never envisioned being excited about folding laundry, but I am! 🥴
I hope you are spending time today doing something you love whether it is manipulating fabric or paint, writing or going for a nice long walk. I’m going to do 2 of 3 so life is good! Cheers and have a wonderful day! 😉 Carol
