Georgetown on my Mind…

Nicky, Reene and I were all looking at the Jen Kingwell Georgetown on my Mind pattern shortly after the Fat Quarterly Retreat this year. They won the pattern each this year as part of the pub quiz, and I won it the year before and still hadn’t started it. Now I need a new project like a hole in the head, but when there’s two others starting the same project, and the pattern is beautiful, it’s very tempting to have an impromptu sew along!

I’ve not got very far. I am machine stitching mine a block at a time as and when I feel like it, however since this pattern is designed for hand sewing, there are no seam allowances on the templates. I have therefore been making new templates with seam allowances added. A boring, but necessary task. I’ve decided to do it in stages. I’ve started with planning the outer 8 circles.

I think I’m going to use these charm packs of Pedal Pushers, but I’m not sure what colour background to do yet, maybe beige or something like that.

The other two haven’t blogged about it yet, but I’ll link up their latest posts in case anyone is interested as and when I blog about this project.
