It was Madelines first attempt at patchwork, and I don't know how she could bear to part with it. At least it's now out of the cupboard and will provide a lovely hug for some lucky young person.
Then I started to work on my Sarah Fielke 'Down the Rabbithole' BOM. The first part is a circle with forty rays. Yes, forty! That's a recipe for a potential bra cup rather than a flat circle! Since my record on accuracy isn't very extensive, I was pleased that Sarah gives a clever tip. Make up the first quarter (just 10 strips) and then check to see if it covers a right angle. If it's too big, take smaller seams and if too small, take larger seams. I made my first quarter and nervously checked it against my ruler.
What a surprise! It couldn't be better!
Here is the completed circle, as flat as a pancake! Now, it may not be completely circular, but at least it's flat!
