I didn't like it. It just didn't seem to flow. No matter how often I changed the blocks round I couldn't build up any enthusiasm for it. It lacked movement. So I thought I'd leave it for a bit and come back to it with a fresh mind. I got on with some hand quilting on Five Star (see last post) and caught up on a few blogs I read. One blog I love to read is Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville's Quips & Snips. She had been teaching a class in Pennsylvania using her Strip Twist free pattern and as soon as I saw her photos I realised that the block started off with a four strip Rail Fence block., which I already had. It is then paired up with another block, cut in half diagonally and then sewn back together again. There is a lot of movement in the pattern which is what I was looking for. It didn't take too long to cut them up and sew them back together, and then came the fun part of deciding which block goes where. This step took me a couple of days as I kept changing my mind, but it's all sewn together now and looks like this:
I'm going to machine quilt and bind this over the week-end, and then I have to decide how much to charge for it. I've never made anything for sale before, so I don't really know where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
