Sisters Together

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How much Diane loves the quilt, and how happy Lorna and I were as we created it together. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Traditional quilt blocks are a great starting point for designing your own quilt. All it takes is graph paper and colored pencils, and probably a bit of math, to design a quilt.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton quilting fabric

Q&A with Debbie C.

Bev B asked:
WOW. This quilt is really pretty. I can tell you all had fun with it. Great Job. I found out just lately that I do not have any/very little brown fabrics. When I get rid of the stuff I do have and no plans to use any of it, I will look for more browns, golds, etc. to put in my stash. Thanxs for the insperation. Bev B Was this a hard quilt to do?
Debbie C. answered:
Thanks, Bev. The only thing hard about this quilt was that each block has a lot of pieces. We had to lay out each block carefully before sewing. After a few blocks, we came up with a sequence for sewing the pieces and pressing the seams that made the work a little easier. The important thing was to make sure that adjoining seams were going in opposite directions to reduce bulk. As I recall, we drew a diagram showing which was to press the seams to avoid getting confused. It was a lot of fun, especially since we were working together on it.
Bev B asked:
Where did you get the pattern??? I would really like to try my hand at this one.
Debbie C. answered:
I used a book with block patterns, but you can find the Sister's Choice block pattern online also. Here is one site: http://www.quiltaholics.com/bom/sischc.htm
