New Respect for Pattern Designers
I am so thrilled with the response to the Two Hearts in Love quilt (pictured below), but someone asked me for the pattern I used for the border. Big problem. I didn't use a pattern, just had an idea in my head, put it on graph paper, applied crayons then went for it. Yes, I made mistakes and enjoyed some quality time with my seam ripper. But how to describe what I did and how I did it??? Mercy me, what a trial it was...sure hope the poor lady can figure out what I was talking about! I did send her pictures, so I hope she can figure it out. My respect for designers who publish their patterns has skyrocketed!!!
