My Quilting Cherry..

by Kate on July 29, 2009

has been POPPED!

Mum was here all last week and because she is such a fantastic help with the kids I managed to finish the 9 Square One-a-Day quilt. This is the first quilt where I have seen through the whole process…from start to finish…what a fantastic feeling!

A few key things I have learnt whilst quilting this baby is how important it is to get the 1/4 inch seam, especially when you are straight line quilting. Everything needs to be symmetrical because boy… those straight lines show up ALL the wonky bits! I have since realised that my Bernina came with a No’ 57 foot…I cannot believe I didn’t find this sooner!

I need A LOT more practice on the actual quilting side of things but overall I am really pleased with the outcome.

Red solid binding from Prints Charming and the quilt is backed in a grey cotton with teenie white African animals (forgot to photogragh).

The quilt measures 36″x43″ – small but perfect for this:
