I have seemed to have lost my 9 ". I have looked and looked and still can't seem to find it, Oh where can it be ! Its not under the desk or in the shed, Oh 9" where are you.
No I haven't lost my mind not yet, am working on it though..... Last year I brought a wonderful book called "Layer Cake, Jelly Rolls and Charm Quilts" by Pam and Nicky Lintott. Anyway a few weeks ago I decided to make the "Hidden stars "quilt in the book which uses 1 Layer cake and 1m of fabric. I just love stars and thought it would be a fun simple quilt to make, which it was.
So on completing the top I measured it and found that I had lost 9" in size from what the book said it should be. I under stand that not all machines sew with the same 1/4" seam allowance but wow what a different in size.
Even with out the 9" it still came out great, now I just have to find time to pop it on to the machine to quilt it .
I do like the red stars they stand out so well against the rest of the fabric. I hope you all are having a safe and happy Easter with lots of family and friends ( don't forget the chocolate)
