Welding Cap - One Monthly Goal August

I am following everyone along at Elm Street Quilts to see what they've challenged themselves to complete in August. You can find my Challenge story here. It is my desire to learn to piece a welding cap together. Well...... That was a huge fail this go around. I finished it, but got lost somewhere in my constructing steps. Let's Just Say... It isn't necessarily a welding cap like everyone else's.

I started with this....



And started de-constructing to find a pattern in it.

 
 

I came up with this.




  


Definitely a project in the making. I will have to try this again and possibly read a tutorial or watch some videos.

Thanks for any encouragement, I really want to learn ;)

  3. I really admire your tenacity in working from a pattern of a real object. Way beyond me so I can only be impressed. Hope you keep going and find other patterns but look good to me.
