Today is the day! I am cleaning up my sewing room and starting something new. Until school pick up, three piano lessons and a church meeting that is. :-) Did I mention my middle kid broke his arm longboarding a few days ago? It’s been a little crazy over here. But today, I am sewing!
So here’s what I need your help with today. Which B&C color is your favorite? Aqua? (Mine) Red? (My mom’s) Would you like to see more Vintage Picnic navy? More black or teal from Handmade? Charcoal from The Good Life? We are in planning stages now, so chime in if there’s something you’d like to see more of. Just don’t say purple. We aren’t big on purple. ;-) FOLLOW 👇👇👇👇@quilting._.anna 📷 @thimbleblossoms
Here is my recently finished #staggeredlinesquilt#quilttop ! I’m currently looking for two committed pattern testers who can finish the quilt top in just under four weeks. But it won’t take you that long, promise. It’s fast! And the pattern is both scrap and yardage friendly. I designed this quilt with a clean, modern bed in mind, so I offer it in twin and queens sizes, but since many people like to make throws, I include that size in the pattern, too (pictured here). I can’t wait to get started on the queen size I’m making for my bed!! 🛏❤️ #igquiltfest#quiltaposypatterns#quiltaposy
Well, I missed yesterday’s #igquiltfest prompt, but luckily I have a tip today that covers both!
Nesting and spinning seams is my favorite secret skill. I call it secret because the pretty little pinwheels on the back of quilt get buried in the middle, but it is the reason that I don’t use a single pin for piecing my patchwork quilts together (#timesaver ). Seams are nested by pressing to opposite sides in neighboring rows- the seam has a little bolt of bulk that you can use to butt seams together and get perfect corners. Spinning seams helps the bulk in the corners lay flat! .
I posted a little tutorial about this on the blog last year, which I’ve linked to in my bio if you’re interested in reading more!
The Best Tip Ever was given to me by Nancy Lee Chong. It was when hand appliquéing or hand quilting never put your project down without having a needle threaded and ready to continue stitching. This way when ever you sit down and have a few minutes to stitch you will! #igquiltfest#pacificrimquilt
