该biscuity金广场大多是从我买了一周的莫达废料包，奶油背景是莫达雪和奶油的冰淇淋寒流袭层蛋糕的组合（我估计他们是如此接近的颜色，我可能as well pretend that they were the same), and the floral bits of the chains are about half a strip roll of floral prints that my aunt and uncle brought me back from the ‘States as a present. Other than the overall layout of cream background, gold frame and floral chains, there was no particular piecing plan beyond “try not to put two squares of the same floral print directly next to each other (corners don’t count)” – this was a real absence of mind effort! For all that, I am rather fond of it.
有趣地，虽然我是在接头时右担心蓝十岁上下的方格不是，它的粉红色/紫色的正方形，真正跳出的最终设计。我认为这是好的，但 - 看起来有点像从开花观叶偷看。或者其他的东西。这不是在严格意义上的“魅力”的被子，但我觉得是相当迷人反正这样的名字爱尔兰魅力卡住。You can see that I cheated a bit on the sides – even with the four-patches I didn’t have enough gold squares to do a 5×5 layout, so I did a 4×5 layout instead and then cut the blocks on one side in half and moved half to the opposite side to balance up the design. Here’s an earlier layout before the blocks were joined (on my bed because that’s the largest available flat surface!):
虽然我把它和送给我的叔叔和婶婶的想法结合在一起，当我们在两家之间的时候，他们非常友好地招待了我们，并且在我必须做的委托被子上帮了很多忙，但我不确定它真的是他们。I think it needs a border, though, so I shall give it one and listen to see if it tells me where it wants to live. For quilting, I’m thinking something fairly simple – maybe cross-hatching on the cream background and a sort of viney flowery FMQ thing along the chains. Gotta source/piece a back first though! And find somewhere suitable to pin-baste it – now that’s the HARD part.
