Looks great I hope I can get mine completed as quickly as you have. Any tips on construction or did it go together pretty easy?
it did go together pretty well. I followed someones suggestion and sewed the small triangles into large ones, then sewed the rows horizontally. Now for the quilting part !!!
Looks beautiful and you're right, no one will see any layout "mistakes."
thank you !
YAY!!! your amazing to already have that quilt done! BRAVO!!
thanks! And I wanted to thank you for this project. I know there were a few bumps in the beginning, but it really is a beautiful quilt and I love it. I liked having the community here, and yourself, to answer questions and give suggestions! Great fun!
t-shirt rag qlt asked:
since I just received my material is it possible to see pattern details somewhere?
I think the pattern is back up again now, although there still seems to be some confusion about the sizes. I used the original sizes..4-1/2 inch strips and it worked out fine. But larger ones would give you a bit of "wiggle room" so would be ok as well. Good luck...it is a beautiful quilt once you get it together!
Hi, I'm also done piecing my rows and have sewn the first six together. I've discovered that my decisions re: pressing left something to be desired as I now have multiple thicknesses in many places, especially where 5 points come together. I ended up pressing the row seams open to avoid any further bunching. Wondered if you had a method for deciding how to press your seams that worked better than my rather random approach? I'll likely use this pattern in the future and would like to do a better job of it! Thanks.
I must admit that I am pretty random with the pressing too. I usually press toward the darker fabric, but then when I am sewing them together I will sometimes switch them to make them nest better. I will occasionally snip the seam near the point sew that I can press it to the side that works best. I have also pressed some open when it works better. Sorry there is no easy answer !
