I am pleased with the points on this quilt. They are not perfect, but they are better than previous points I have worked on in quilts. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time in lining up your fabrics, and make sure you keep a 1/4 inch seam throughout.

What you will need

  • This was a kit I found on clearance at my local quilt shop. All the pieces were already laser cut. I backed it with a tropical batik. I machine pieced and then quilted using stitch in the ditch.

love the colors...it looks great, remember all points get worn down by life. And they're a lot more comfortable that way :)

Akingshill asked:
Did you lay all the peices out first to see where you wanted the colors to go?? it's very pretty!
tortugaquilter@gmail.com answered:
Yes, I always lay out all my quilts on a design wall before piecing my tops together. I have one of those portable ones so I set it up close to my machine, I lay out the quilt top and then I take pictures with my digital camera and review the pictures on the camera. This allows my eye to catch any glaring areas.
