First thing is.....
I did it!! I completed my first quilt... ahem... top!..;-)
It's a bit skewed and wonky-looking close up in a few places... but all.... WOOT!!
The second thing is, I figured out why I was having some many issues with those Burda patterns... I was using this chart when I SHOULD having been using THIS one!
... this measurement chart makes it seem like I should look like one of those funhouse mirror reflections!
Seeing as I have yet to find any of the BurdaPlus patterns particularly appealing, it looks like I can take the next exit off the Burda pattern highway. Because no amount of diet and exercise is going to make my hips any narrower or my back any less broad.
