Lynn C. stopped by our Fab Fabrics store today and brought in her beautifully pieced quilt. When piecing this beauty, she used the Sally Collins method of starting at the center and going out. Lynn began with a pattern, but altered the center square and extended the pinwheels into the border. She loved the challenge of learning how to extend the pinwheels. In addition, Lynn added additional borders which turned out quite fancy!
Lynn ran into a test of her patience and nerves when completing one of her borders and realizing she was just a few inches short! She ended up needing to get a new piece of fabric to achieve the beautiful look she wanted of uninterrupted borders. Thank goodness we still had the fabric that she needed!
What have you done when you have run a little short on fabric? Have a heart attack?
