It taught me yet again the importance of accurate cutting and seam widths.
It all looked well but as I put it together some of my strips must have been cut a little narrow which effected the over all chequer effect.
The pattern did request I cut to the full width of the fabric but didn't state the width as a result I had much more than I required so have some chequers to put away for another project!!!
The colours I chose weren't those recommended but they were of similar tones and seem to work well together.
The inner red border did cover up a lot of problems I had with the chequers and then ready for final border
The patchwork is now ready for its appliqué before the backing and batting are applied. Once they are applied I will baste, quilt then bind before it goes on the wall
