Running Free – done

I had a really hard time with this one for a couple of reasons:

  1. The kit was made up with Batiks – never again – I hate using Batiks, especially in patterns that aren’t written specifically for them.
  2. You have to be Okay – no you have to be very comfortable sewing triangles (on the bias) – let alone using batiks.
  3. Pattern instructions were difficult to follow – pictures/examples were not always with the words.
  4. Even though the panel that was used was on the cover of the pattern – there is no way the dimensions in the directions were correct.   It said to cut the panel to 44 1/2 inches wide. Well in order to make the side border (3 blocks) fit I had to add a 2″ strip, by adding that strip all around (because it would have been uneven to have a 1/2″ strip on the top and bottom) I had to cut another 2″ off the panel.

So it done, I lost a lot of the tips of triangles, but I am okay with how it turned out. And it was a blustery day again here today so taking the picture was tough to do.

Off to pull the next one out of the kit container.
