Highlighting Westalee Design Miniture Baptist Template Set
I am always telling my students not to unpick something that is supposedly WRONG. Look at it first and then create something different from it. So I had to do the same.
Initially I only intended to release one block from the pattern, but when my quilting is wrong, you know, design modifications, another block appeared.
These two sweet, pardon the pun, treats came from one of my quilts, "Baptist Feathers".
One of the blocks in particular, reminded me of a Christmas Cracker. I thought it might be fun to do it in Christmas colours and release it before Christmas. However a few years went by and I didn’t get round to it.
So here is the kicker in this story. Not only did I quilt it wrong once... I did it 3 times. So maybe the universe was telling me to do something with it. Do I make mistakes? Of course I do. however, it’s where you take those design modifications that counts.
So you now have 2 projects that are quick and easy to make that will teach you not only how to create a new technique, but also how to modify a so called ‘I did it wrong’ design.
I called then Christmas Treats because for me they look like Christmas. I love to celebrate this holiday with my family and friends.
These designs can also be made for many other reasons, Birthday parties, placemats, Halloween, anything really. It’s fun to play with design.
So please enjoy these Christmas Treats.
