I always admire the English yarns and knitting patterns. Though l have several, l must do several trial swatches to achieve correct tension. The north American yarns a more loosely twisted, and the stitches are wider/shorter than w/British product. The terminology in crotchet is different than ours as well. Your slip st. is our single crotchet, for instance.
As you saw on my page, l too made a GFG quilt ( but not w/paper piecing, just hand sewed regular way). lf you visit my page again, find the "blogs posted", click on the words...l did a tutorial on a bias binding for these quilts with scalloped sides that you may find helpful. Read it before you do te actual quilting, as you have to keep backing rectangular and not cut until after the binding is on to keep it from didtorting.Good luck, and be as ever, patient:)
i have one site in particular...few bookmarks here and there. while you sleep, my friend, i will find and post later. but for anon...a glass of wine, the Vikings and hope the clouds clear one last time today and provide a beautiful desert sunset.
before you start. check out sites where you can program in the size of diamond or hexies whatever and print out a grid. then print onto freezer paper iron on to fabric, then cut out fabric and paper all at one time.
know what you mean about late hours, pc's hubby et al... so..now you get my "vacation" joke. since hubs left for a week this a.m. i can do whatever i want as late as i want or nothing at all if i want. lovin' it.
great. we seem to be wandering the same paths here this afternoon. just left a note for you at epp. but i really would start fresh. i have a hexi project i picked up at a yardsale. i played w it for a while off and on, will probably never finish it. the originater of the project decided to make hexi gfg with double knit. wow..ok...lets see how this goes..should prob just toss it. oh well...but like i said..flexability of cotton or silk..ability to hold a crease...all that makes silk & cotton my preferred for epp. which i do not do a lot of..so it has to be easy! lollol
we also have an "official" place to hang out and air our pics quips and queries in a group set up for the current mystery quilt by linda hahn. links are all in one of the discussions & it is just starting. so far very fun!
Three years of picking & unstitching....hmmmm sounds like you have joined the right group...think you will find many of similar talents here @ My Quilt Place, me included lollol. Any way nice to met you and hope you enjoy your time here...and have fun
