Patches and Pinwheels
Today I finally wrestled the last two long seams together on the Patches and Pinwheels top that I had started in early November at the Golden Gese workshop. I had rows 1 through 5 all assembled and pressed, and 6 through 10, and 11 through 15. That made three very large sections which was so much easier to press than one giant one. Then I sewed the two seams between the three sections. I find that horsing those big sections around is very tiring on the shoulders and arms.
Next I spread it out on the clean driveway that I'd swept to have Felix help me measure through the center for borders. It was 80"X91". We spent some time auditioning colors for the borders and I liked the tan with the chocolate brown.
