“Sweet Tweets”

My friend Liz made this quilt for a new member of the extended family.  As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be a pattern.  I helped with proofing and I’m making one now a friends new baby. 

IMG_4894 Only something went wrong.  It is so like me to do something like this.  Can you see it?

IMG_4903 I put the Steam-A-Seam on the WRONG SIDE of the fabric.  I didn’t even notice until I pulled off the paper backing to iron it down and realized the sticky side was on the right side of the fabric. 

IMG_4899 So now I’m not sure what to do.  It took a little time to trace those birds, cut them out and iron them on.  I really don’t want to do it again and waste all of this fabric.  Plus, I’m out of Steam-A-Seam.  I read this article in a Quilts And More  issue about using the wrong side of the fabric to give a vintage, faded look to your quilts.  So I’m going to go with it and hope for the best.   You can buy your own pattern in her Etsy shop and enter her giveaway on her blog for a chance to win the pattern for free!
