Since there are 16 materials in the series, I made up my options to make the Square throw, which has 16 blocks and is 60″ sq.. Equivalent to my Homecoming quilt quilt and my Knitted Star quilt quilt, I went lån med betalingsanmerkning a darker background (Magnetism) lån med betalingsanmerkning this one….I in fact in fact feel admire it makes the entirety in fact pop! I LOVE how straight forward and straight-forward the background slicing is. You literally handiest must cut one size sq.! As soon as the entirety used to be cut, I organized them into piles, then moderately blended up my pieces. I command “moderately” because I positively keep more thought into this quilt than I did lån med betalingsanmerkning my quilt quilt. I no longer handiest wished to hold in options colours and values, but to boot the size of the prints. I knew that I was going to preserve a explore at to make all of my directional materials move the identical plan in my blocks, so I also wished to handiest exhaust one directional cloth per block…snug to preserve a explore at to make it less complicated down the boulevard.

I’m at point to enrolled in String & Myth’s Free Motion Quilting Academy, so as that’s one step. But there might per chance be also a LOT that I’m able to compose lån med betalingsanmerkning snug my walking foot!

    It is most likely you’ll per chance well gain my walking foot tutorial here.

    I musty my proper Janome 6700P and stitched traces that were 2 inches apart. Then I turned around my quilt 90 degrees and stitched traces that were 1 toddle apart. This created a rectangle grid.

    Then, I stitched traces diagonally going in both instructions so as that they intersected in the grid half of the make. Ohhhhhh the feel! I develop no longer lån med betalingsanmerkningiate I seen snug how dense this is able to per chance well well be, but I compose in fact be pleased how it affords a “classic” in fact feel. In hindsight, since I was attempting to compose this quilt rather speedily, I potentially will need to hold made better rectangles in the starting….admire per chance 3″ a system and a pair of” the opposite. But again, I lån med betalingsanmerkningiate this quilt might per chance well hold quite a lot of yummy crinkle once it be washed and dried, so in the raze, I’m cheerful lån med betalingsanmerkning the size. All in all, I estimate that the quilting took be about 15 hours? I did no longer attend observe, but that appears about apt.

    I did no longer blueprint any of these traces sooner than hand, I snug went for it. For the vertical and horizontal traces, I musty the seams on my quilt as my handbook and for the diagonal traces, I musty the grid intersections as my handbook. It used to be a minute nerve-racking getting the angle of the traces upright after I was before the entirety starting my sew line, but after some narrate, it bought a lot less complicated.

    True a discover of warning, whereas you occur to make a selection up out to present this a try: no longer ALL of my intersections lined up. There were some areas that were snug off. Originally, this fearful me and I thought that it will most likely per chance well well be noticeable and distracting. However, once it used to be all completed, you in fact can no longer declare! So even though it be no longer supreme, attend on pluggin’ away!

    I musty a sorrowful grey thread for the front of my quilt so as that it will most likely per chance well well blend in lån med betalingsanmerkning the Magnetism. Then for the wait on, I musty a cream shade thread, since my backing is largely cream. I’m so cheerful that I went lån med betalingsanmerkning two various threads!

    For my binding, I was planning on the utilization of the mustard yellow print, since it be one among my celebrated colours. But once I bought it all quilted, I felt admire it need snug a trusty border….so I went lån med betalingsanmerkning Magnetism. I machine stitched the binding onto the front of my quilt and hand stitched it down the utilization of DMC pearl cotton #8 thread, which I showcase in this tutorial.
