You may have, at some point, popped over the The Rainbow Hare blog where the lovely Janine blogs. She recently posted this pic of an awesome pentagon,
which she made, having received two books about spiral quilts:
(Since I have shamelessly copied her photos, do look at this shot of the centre of the pentagon under construction, isn't it fab)
Where was I? Oh yes, having wiped the drool from the keyboard, and being sat next to this collection of yummy fabrics sitting on my shelf . . .
. . . I emailed Janine to ask if the method would work for a hexagon, or an octagon?
You are going to have to accept what happened next, however much you don't believe me - The lovely LOVELY Janine simply packaged up the books, and the CD rom, and POSTED THEM TO ME, so that I can have a go, and then return the books to her, and they arrived today
(I know we have followed each others blog for a while, but we have never met - isn't that the kindest thing!)
Are patchworkers kind because they are patchworkers?, or do kind people patchwork because they are kind? - I don't know, but hand on heart, I have never met a selfish patchworker, HOWEVER - Janine is one of the best!!!!
