I'm still pickled. Or pickling. Whichever.
Since my tiny pickle from yesterday was extremely tiny, (3"x7" unfinished, which would have ended up about 2.5" by 6" finished), I went looking for a bigger pickle, and found a likely contender at All People Quilt.
But, I seldom seem to be able to do things the easy way, and so I decided that I wanted this big pickle to have 10 points instead of only six. I redrafted the pattern and gave it a whirl.
There were a few problems. I didn't think to get a picture of the vaguely cup-shaped object that I ended up with. A few alterations were needed before it would lie flat.
I had to add a bit more width to the end triangles -
and my football shape in the center was fine for length, but a bit too chubby in the midsection.
Here are my first two pickles, side by side.
The big pickle is 8.5"x18" unfinished, so it towers over the little one.
As a matter of fact, it looks like that little pickle would fit inside the center of the big pickle...
Naw. That's too crazy, even for me.
Linking with Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap! Come see what everyone's up to this week!
