Earlier this year I finished a quilt that is very lucky it was ever finished. When I saw that Leanne was running a QAL to make Julie's MOD POD quilt. I just had to join in. Two or three years ago, I had saved this tissue box
hoping one day I would be able to work out how to make the pattern into a quiltn. Then Julie from Distant Pickles came up with this pattern, so I didn't have to worry any more!
but I tried several methods of getting those curves neat, and through sheer perseverence, I think they were reasonable good. I developed my own way of doing them, which took everyone else's tips, strategies and methods, incorporating them in something that worked for me. I have not sewn a curve since then, and I'm pretty sure I can't remember how I did them!
The quilting was a challenge. I wanted to echo quilt around each of the circles, but that was something I never managed, so ended up stippling the background, letting the linked circles pop out
I'm so happy with my finished quilt, and I can't help patting it fondly every time I go into the spare room!
Finally, I would like to thank my various animals without whose help, this quilt would never have been finished!!
