But, yes, but. I loved the colours, and the design, so I got rather more of it than I strictly needed. Apart from the fact that they were not exactly going to sell me just three or four motifs, now were they?
And I got some coordinating fabrics too.
And I had an idea for a quilt top using these with some solid alongside.
And then I got to planning.
So, the next thing is to look at how the motif will fit in the item, and to measure the repeat.
This is where it all starts to go pear shaped.
( Interesting reflection from the window there almost looks like a pattern piece... )
The horizontal pattern repeat is 6". In other words, Quilt-Speak as it were, 5 1/2" finish, maximum.
Then the vertical repeat is 3 7/8", so that puts us into 3 3/8" finished, maximum.
What on earth can I do with those figures?
Apart from that, either the pattern is not quite printed straight, or the fabric had warped, so it is not quite cut straight. There will be some waste.
So, watch this space, I am working on it! I have some ideas, but.....
Any suggestions out there? Please?
