Yes, I know. This blog is meant for finishing things, not for beginning new ones.
But there was one thing on my mind for a couple of days now that kept nagging me. So today I had to give in and went over to Avis’ Disappearing Nine-Patch Tutorial. I had no choice.
After a quick search I found some fabrics I had already put together for another project. Some batik samples I bought at the Dutch fabric market a while ago.
I transformed the measurement from 10″ to 25 cms – not much of a difference – and cut some squares. And now *trumpets* I got out my sewing machine. Yes, you’ve got that right.
After pinning the pieces together I lowered the presser foot and very carefully began to sew.
And my batiks didn’t let me down. Look, I managed to match the corners for the first time.
I hope this isn’t just beginner’s luck. 😉
