Twelve and done…
I finished the last panel for my green scrappy braid quilt top yesterday.
Whew!! So glad to be done sewing all the strips together. There are 92 strips per panel. 12 panels = 1104 strips. And it was all add strip, sew, stop, add strip, sew, stop, add… You get the picture. There was no way (that I know of) to do chain piecing.
But it’s done.
And now I tackle the trimming and sewing the panels together. Somewhere on the net, I read if you starch the panel BEFORE you trim the sides, the fabric (which is on the bias) will be more stable. Not sure if this is true, but since I am still new to quilting, I figured I had better follow what the experts are saying.
So, I sprayed each panel, pressed the heck out of it, hung them back up on my design wall. I wanted to make sure they were completely dry before touching them. I am thinking later today, I will get started.
Wish me luck.
