We have to submit an image with a ruler/measuring tape to verify that our mini quilt is indeed 20 inches square. Hope mine looks alright! I love how it turned out! The swoopy geese are always cool and I had a much easier time with those curves that I thought I would!
I mentioned my use of freeze paper last time but I didn't include any pictures so I thought I might talk about it here, just in case anyone was interested. I pressed the freezer paper onto the front of my pieced panels then stitched around the edge of it at about a 1/8th in seam allowance on all three pieces. I then trimmed outside of the seam allowance on the other two pieces before attempting to connect them. I left the triangles intact so that I would have some excess to pin and secure the other parts too. Sorry I don't have any pictures for that part. I sort of forgot I could blog about it haha. Once pinned, I then appliqued the outer panels onto the triangle panel by folding the edges over at the stitched line. I was really surprised by how easy this was! I will have to utilize this technique again and maybe do some sort of tutorial! Now to decide which detail shots I need to include... I might even take a few more... I am not all that happy with the few I already have. Oh well.
I guess this one is alright but I would like a few with straighter lines and maybe without those stray threads. Yeah, that's what I should do!
In other news I finally pieced together the final row for my Tula Pink Anchors Aweigh quilt! I finished the rest of it over two weeks ago and then got distracted by this challenge... I would be lying if I didn't mentioned that I was also not looking forward to piecing that final strip. It just so happened to be the most complicated one. I didn't mean to save it for last, I promise! I ended up finishing it a chunk at a time. I completed the first half two weeks ago, then the middle chunk last week and finally the last bit just a few days ago! After that final row was piece I just added it to what I had already put together and I was done!
I am really pleased with it and can't wait to quilt it! I already have so many fun ideas! It may take a little while just because I need to purchase batting and backing but I think it might be bumped up in my quilting queue.
Alright, I am off to do some longarm quilting! I will be back with the story of that project later... And tomorrow I officially start subbing on Vashon! Yay! I am a little nervous but really excited, lets hope I haven't forgotten everything I learned.
