By the skin of his teeth.......his father came home and fed him and talked to him and protected him from the horrible thunderstorms that passed through. I was doing none of that for him.
MY good dog slept in the corner of my quilt room while I sorted out what needed to be done to save the Rosette. I actually cried about mid afternoon.
I need to at least figure out how to get the outside ring of paper templates back into the last round. He ripped out a group of stitching but I am going to try to see about hand sewing without the template papers. It seems insurmountable, but I will at least try.
Last resort, I order another rosette #1 and start over.
After my cry, I put it away and pulled out two quilts on which I needed to finish sewing the binding. They are both now in the finish column.
Cascading stars is pretty traditional. My excuse for that is it was started in like 2007. I remember picking out the fabrics and being fascinated with the fact that you had to keep up with the diagonals.
The Neighborhood came from an old book but is way more modern. Lots of solids, and some traditionals in the mix. the houses are all solid. the windows are just cut out and stitched around after all the quilting was done. The edges I left to fray look like eyelashes!
I worked on this at a retreat and one lady kept saying I was making swatstikas. I really wasn't and worked really hard to make the changes necessary to the garden blocks so she wouldn't freak out.
You know me, Swastika Girl........
