|64"x68" 5 charm packs Dream On by Moda|
I also tried spray basting for the first time - something I don't plan to try again for a very long time. What a nightmare! I know that spray basting is crazy popular but I had The. Worst. Experience. Ever. In fact, if there was ever something that could make me stop quilting forever, spray basting would be it. But I digress. I don't doubt that it was a toxic combo of user error, brand and a dash of bad juju.
So, I grabbed my trusty basting pins and started over. Lucy was excited.
You can tell that I made this quilt top a year ago because back then I had no idea that every seam should be pinned in order to get the points to match. The points are as much as 3/4" off. Yes, you read that right. On a 5 inch charm, I managed to be off by almost 1/5!
This was my first time using (semi) straight lines on a big quilt. Straight lines are FAST! Now I see why they are so popular. I also really like how the quilt is softer than the quilts that I tried stippling.
The binding is a random Kona (I think) in a fuschia-ish colour.
Dream On is a really cute line. I'm hoping that a recipient at Project Linus will think it's pretty too. Even if it is a year late.
