I love it when points come together!!!
This week I have been working on my quilt to raise money for our church’s Haiti mission trip. In all honesty, all of my points are perfect!! But that is something I am working on and this project is great practice!! I did learn some great tips from a Craftsy class by Debbie Maddy called Easy Piecing, Amazing Design (and it’s on sale for less than $20 right now!). You may already know how to get amazing points, but it has always been a challenge for me!
I started by chain stitching those 98 HST’s, along with my squares, that I cut out with my AccuQuilt Go! Big last week, using my favorite Aurifil cotton mako 50 wt thread! That went pretty quickly! Then I cut them apart, pressed them, and stitched them into blocks with my assorted batik squares.
Once I stitched all the blocks together, placed them on my (portable-more about that at another time) design wall deciding on the final layout before stitching them into rows.
While I’m not finished at the moment, today I will complete this top. Now I need to get batting and wide backing, get it on my longarm, quilted, and hopefully finished next week! Then I have to get this pattern written up and for sale. Stay tuned…
So how do YOU make those perfect points? Inquiring minds want to know!!
