there is a mess going on over here....
This top is ironed and ready to be sandwiched.
Already sandwiched.... (all this talking about sandwiches is making me hungry).
Quilting this top....no peeking.....no can see until it is time.
You will need tape (can’t find the regular tape so we are making do), marker, ruler, paper (or you can use the back of your fabric but just use a different marker.
Three sheets of paper with one cut in half. Tape them together.
Flip the paper over so the tape is on the under side. My ruler does not go to 28”, so I start from the middle and measure out to 14” on each side, this will give me 28” width wise.
Then I go length wise, measure 14” out on both sides of the middle.
Then I go diagonal on both sides of the middle line.
After that is done…I put ruler with the 1” or 14” in the middle and start placing dots, 14” from the middle all the way around.
as you see here.
Now it is time to connect the dots. I have never been known for a steady hand. Could never be a surgeon.
Now we have all of the dots connected with a complete circle.
Like I said, you can do this on the back of your fabric if you do not have the paper, just use invisible markers.
I did get my quilt sandwiched and pinned yesterday…..boy was that a feat!!
Measures 15 1/2 by 15 1/2
Using my Large heart die and the small one for the Accuquilt Go Cutter.
Here is the large heart
Used my 2 1/2 strip die to cut the heart, I did have to take my scissors and cut up the middle.
Here is the placement of the heart
This is how I placed it. Then I Blanket stitched around
As you can see from the squares, I have the purple and pink alternating.
I cut 8 one inch by 7 1/2 “ strips, four of each color. You can see in the picture
how I placed them. Did a four patch for the middle.
Quilted as desired, and bound.
