Regular readers will know that I have been trying to make a crochet flower without, it has to be said, a great deal of success. When I was in London recently, however, I treated myself to a copy of "Cute and Easy Crochet" by Nicki Trench on the basis that it was aimed at beginners and included patterns for crochet flowers. The method used in the book was very different to the method I have been puzzling over in my previous attempts, and to my beginner crochet brain made more sense! I have been eyeing up crochet projects as the ideal thing for long car journeys so with our recent trip to Tallinn under my belt I am pleased to announce that I have a crochet flower to share! You can relax now Wendy :)
I was very proud of my first crochet flower and of course, once I had started I didn't stop!
A few weeks ago I signed up for the In the Bag - Ugly Fabric Challenge and my fabrics arrived today from my swap partner, Mary and I now see just how much of a challenge this is going to be!
The rules of the challenge are "to construct a quilt using 90% of the fabric in your “In The Bag”.
You may add: Any percentage of fabric from your own stash & you may add 1 yard newly purchased piece of fabric. There is no min. or max. quilt size required. Fabric may be used on front, back & binding of quilt. Quilt size is determined by the amount of fabric you add to the 2 yards you will be sent in your “In The Bag”
So any suggestions as to what to do will be much appreciated.
