For the Owl Post Swap, my partner mentioned having a new reading corner that was in need of some cushion covers. I knew I wanted to try to quilt something for her, so when I saw this Color Jolt Pattern I knew I wanted to try it. I didn’t realized it was paper pieced until I printed out the pattern pieces. Not my strong suit, but it’s great exercise for my brain!
The chair is a crafting room casualty, lol, ignore the mess if you can.
A few in-progress shots…the first panel finished!
I later realized that either the long border on the side or the short border on the bottom is in the wrong spot. Not sure how that happened as it matched the paper pattern (obviously, I stitched right on top of it!). So, I had to swap this piece and another to get the borders to work. However, that did mess up my alignment of the lines as you can see in this pic:
Though it happened on the bottom row, too, so it might just be me, HA! The reviews said it was perfect, so I must have messed up something along the way. At least it wasn’t a total loss.
I quilted a couple of the larger leftover pieces for the back:
In the middle of this I swore I’d never attempt it again, but when I was so happy with the finished product, I might take that back. I do own the pattern after all.
