Who would have thought that vestibular nueritis could take so long to heal. I particularly appreciated my physical therapists that specialize in balance/dizzyness issues. They not only had me working on basic balance and visual exercises, but gave me a number of items to work on to simulate some of my skating and ice dancing moves. Although I am not yet at 100%, I am functioning and am very thankful for that.
Back to quilting.
Fall is in the air and I am excited to promote my pattern "Come Said the Wind". The pattern is centered around a poem/old children's song. There are two sizes (both wall hangings). The smallest could also be used as a placemat.
The blocks in the quilt are "small" --- but really cute. The maple leaf finishes to 3 inch and the Sycamore leaf to 4-1/4 inch. However, don't be intimidated by the size. There are lots of tips to ensure successful piecing of the project.
I provide instructions for using a number of specialty rulers/tools. These tools are optional. Instructions are also included for the traditional rulers.
These free pdf files of the verse are also available for Come Said the Wind pattern.
- Large wallhanging. Set paper size to 12" x 18". Run a test copy before printing on fabric and measure to make sure poem will fit in finished cut piece of 17-1/2" x 9". This will only work on a large carriage printer.
- Small wallhanging. Run a test copy before printing on fabric. Outside lines should be 6-1/2" x 9-1/2". Print on letter paper.
The full pattern can be purchased through the Shopping Section of my website. Because I am excited to be back blogging again, I thought I would offer a sale on the pattern. It will be $7 (regularly $10) for the next week.
