Three Sisters for Moda
What was your inspiration?
I love Charise's patterns and her blog. I was reading along and noticed she is doing this Vintage Block Quilt Along. I want to do several BOM's this year. I enjoyed the Craftsy BOM last year. I am using fabric from the Three Sisters line for Moda which I obtained several years ago. It may or may not still be available...but never fear, I have plenty in my stash! I have been hoarding this for quite the while. I originally bought it to make another quilt, but I have made that quilt so many times I'm bored with it. I think this will be pretty. The fabric has a romantic note to it and has that teal color I love!!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I would say that this is a good BOM if you want to learn some advanced techniques, like sewing curves and Y seams. At the end of each of these blocks you should be proficient at both...LOL. Definitely do as she says and use a SCANT 1/4 inch. It will make a difference in the final trim up.
