I started this quilt quite a few months ago. I seem to have been doing it for ages, but not because it's hard or tricky to do - just a lack of sewing time.
It's a Missouri Star Quilt Co youtube tutorial. I got 3 charm packs off ebay and used up white fabric I had leftover from a previous project.
So it's a bit like a log cabin, but without all the strips. The charm packs are a great way to save all the cutting!
I spent a little bit of time considering a layout, so that I didn't have similar or same charms too close!
You also want to make sure you get the 'falling' bit right.
Once you get a layout, I always find it useful to snap a pic, so I have it to refer back to
The dog thought she'd nip in there and get in this pic.
Then it's just a case of sewing each square together and then each row together.
Pinning! I wish I had an adjustable table as my back is always killing after this bit!
I just stitched round the ditch of each of the charm squares. It was a bit fiddly and took quite a bit of time.
I had a jelly roll that I used for the border and binding
The binding took forever to put on - the jelly roll was just too narrow - note to self; don't do that again!
So I was up until 1 in the morning last night binding and then gave up.
I was also using a new wadding - Mountain Mist which I bought from the Create & Craft TV website. I had a few problems with it. I think it took a bit more effort to get through the machine compared to warm & Natural and it kept getting stuck on my walking foot upon entry to the quilt top. I also had quite a lot of creases. Part of the reason why I was up so late last night as I had to do a lot of unpicking. So I don't think I'll use it again. I will just find the extra money and stick with the reliable quality of the Warm & Natural brand.
But here's the finished result - I'm quite pleased with it!
