The pattern itself is fantastic. Like all patterns by Cluck Cluck Sew, it designed to look more complicated than it is and the top comes together very quickly. The only blip I had on my radar was that I really needed my fat quarters to be 21" tall and they were not. As in, all but 3 of my 12 fat quarters were too short. What the heck is that about?
|Too short meant I had to do some improv.
|Orange, turquoise and teal in real life.
Which taught me a lesson. I had some other bundles I put together ages ago, with fabric I probably would not buy now. And seeing how this top turned out and how I just don't love it, I'm breaking up those bundles and putting the fat quarters I like back on the shelf and the rest in the "Maybe someone else will like these fabrics" box in my closet.
Like this penguin bundle here. No idea what possessed me. I might fussy cut a penguin or two, though.
And for a long time I was planning to make a rainbow circus sort of quilt. I built up this combination over many shop hops:
Do you have any bundles languishing somewhere in your stash? I have more that I haven't reviewed yet that are going to get a hard look very soon. Why make things you don't love?
|It is those beiges that kill me. Just no.
|But no. Too much. Too bright. No. I don't want to make this quilt.
