|Oops I saw a mistake and had to unsew one piece at this point!|
I got the pieces together before I noticed another mistake so at this point I began to unsew again LOL
I replaced the errant white piece with a black piece put it all back together trimmed and ironed and was actually quite happy with it for a prototype!
This is going to be the centerpiece of a quilt for my brother-in-law who like me is a Collingwood Magpies Australian Rules Football club supporter. Here it is I just have to finish it by doing the binding:
I just did straight line stitch in the ditch quilting for the blocks:
And I also sewed with black thread around the edge of the magpie and sewed on a button for an eye:
The plaid fabrics were old men's shirts from Goodwill which are soft and supple already and I used Warm and natural cotton batting then a piece of flannel for the backing when I quilted it to make it snuggly but I am also considering adding a minky backing which I will just tie quilt to the top before binding to make it even snugglier. The quilt is only 41" x 32" so my intention was for it to be a decorative throw quilt.
