This month I have started a new project as a result of a challenge posted in an online sewing community. The challenge was the “Soaring Compliments” pattern from Bryerpatch Studio.
At first I thought this challenge was not for me – I’ve only done two FPP projects previously and the rainbow colour scheme was not my cup of tea. However, I did a bit of digital colouring in and looked at my stash of Oakshott and the next thing I knew was the challenge had been accepted.
Before the sewing could start, some more computer wizardry was required to print the pattern as a tiled PDF and resize it so I could use the charm squares for the geese. My resized pattern is now ~15” instead of the original 25” and so far the smaller scale has been OK for the flying geese sections.
It will be interesting to see how the rest of the pattern comes together at the reduced size.
