Back in October I purchased some red chess themed fabric, with the idea of making Miss B a tote bag. Of course that idea didn't meet with favour and she asked if perhaps I could make her a cushion. At that point I had a brainwave, and emailed Juliet of Tartan Kiwi, to see if she could possibly design me a pattern, to paper piece a knight, Miss B's favourite chess piece.
A week or so later Juliet emailed me a pattern. Enthusiastically I made a the black knight, then lost my sewjo. Today my mission was to sew the ivory knight. In the interests of keeping it real, I have a photo of the last piece I sewed and the mistake on it. Of course I couldn't unpick it and had to redo it. Needless to say it was second time lucky.
Finally I have the centre block completed, (both knights are actually the same size too, it's just that optical illusion thing happening) now just to decide on the border, chess pieces or a sort of checker board design, with black and ivory cornerstone settings. I'm thinking the checker board border gives it a slightly lighter look. What do you think? Then the next dilemma will be how to quilt it.
