While I’ve been knitting my ‘Hoodie or Not’ sweater, my thoughts have been turning to Case 128; The Big Fan Mystery that Planet Patchwork did on New Year’s Day. I’ve been running a few layouts in my mind and have narrowed it down to 2 – they are very similar, but it’s just the movement that is different in them .. I tossed a few layout ideas in this post here and here. I really LIKED one of Merry’s layouts, but really wanted to do something different, so I went for my own twist (like this should surprise anyone).
I do really favour Layout 2 in this case, the motion pulls your eyes to the center while at the same time, making the quilt seem larger than it is. Add the border that is on the same fabric as the blue fan part (I think), then it’ll look like it’s really floating and larger. Least I think so …
Prolly won’t take me to long to sew the blocks together then do the borders .. now the borders haven’t been cut yet, and i’m likely to have to do a different one than she laid out as I somehow managed to goof up cutting the fans and might not have what I need to do the border her way .. geeze i hate waiting so long to work on something – I did have the numbers in my head and whatnot – now I have to refigure it again and I’m praying that I wrote these down .. if not, I have to reinvent the wheel .. sometime this week I’m hoping to get these blocks together 😉 THEN the border **sigh
And while I’m doing this, I’ll also be doing the sleeves on my purple hoodie .. once I work out the shoulder saddle that is ..
