Don’t you just love it when things work out as planned? I’m working on a new quilt-as-you-go lap quilt design (remember my tutorial here?) for a new pattern and I have just two more strips to sew on and guess what? I have just enough batting & backing to sew them onto!!!
Can’t ask for more than that, can I?
This is the new “Amelia” collection (plus a yellow dot that I just had to add) by Me & My Sister for Moda. And no I don’t mean Susan Marth & her sister, Lori. Although my sister was taught to sew by our mom too, she prefers to look at what I sew! She is however, my accountant and biggest cheerleader. According to Moda’s website, Amelia should be at your local quilt shop next month.
Measure, measure, measure. Those are the three most important things to remember for my quilt-as-you-go technique! If you haven’t already tried one, maybe it’s time?
Now, back to work. I need to sew the final two strips on, add the binding and stand back to view my latest creation. That’s my favorite part!
Until next time,
