One teddy flimsy! Thanks for all the great comments! Yes, I had thought about running the stripes the other way, and then I could have mitred the corners! In the end, I had the exact width for the top and bottom borders, but had to join the sides. So hence the cornerstones! This method got me out of having the stripes meet each other in the corners!
I've had a few enquiries about the Teddy quilt pattern. At first I thought I hadn't given credit to the designer but thankfully, way back here I did! Anyway, the pattern I have is from the magazine PATCHWORK & STITCHING, VOL 10 # 12. The pattern designer is one of my favourites.....TONI ALEXANDER Toni also designed the cute dolly's I have been making. Thank you Toni - I just love your designs!!!!
You might be wondering where the Dolly is!? Well, she's sitting very patiently beside my Lounge chair, waiting for the rest of her filling! Almost done. Little Chloe is having her birthday party on Saturday (the day I'm going out to a Quilt Show with my best friend) so I won't be travelling up to Toowoomba for the party (it's at an indoor kids playzone thingy). I will send her present as I know she loves to get parcels in the mail - who doesn't?! I still have to make her Ballerina bag - will get that done soon :-) - sorry, did you say "when does she sleep????" Actually, I'm off to bed very soon, as I have to be up extremely early tomorrow to get our son to tennis training - such fun!
I'll be back with pics of a plump dolly and perhaps a ballerina bag!
WWI - It's Wednesday Weigh In time again - I went to the gym today and worked really hard!!!!! Still no sign of any movement on those scales! (maybe they don't work!!?)
I'm adding more exercise to my plan and also trying very hard to watch what I eat! MH and I have a wedding to attend on Saturday week and I would really like to fit into something I have in the wardrobe - went shopping yesterday and all I can say is "who do they think wears this stuff - and good grief, what size are they?????" I'm telling you, Size 14 is NOT what it used to be!!
