I stuck with the pattern. The only modifications I made was that I used a different fabric for the large border triangles than the frog fabric and the pattern calls for using the same fabric. Tula’s pattern says this is an intermediate pattern. I would agree. There are a ton of bias edges to sew for the borders. The center part are just pin wheels made of half square triangles and set on point. That’s easy. The borders though are all triangles. I tried to use a ton of starch, and I still had some stretching problems. The border points don’t line up perfectly, but I’m OK with it, I’m still learning. But the pattern was really clear and easy to follow, so those of you with more experience should have no trouble at all, and those of you still learning like me can take comfort in knowing the pattern walks you through everything and even if you don’t sew it perfectly, you’ll still end up with a great quilt top.
I love how the quilt top turned out and can’t wait to finish it. I’d love to try it again once I get a little better at bias edges and triangles. Thanks Sara for including me in this great blog hop.
