This was a snap to put together…but it’s easy to get the horizontal/vertical sashing out of line.
One “hint” I learned was to be sure to take your ruler and make a small mark at the edge of the body of the quilt top in line with the vertical sashing–so you can easily line up the seam of the next row.
I like to use either a water soluble pen or the new “Pilot FriXion pen” that disappears with the heat of the iron. It’s great for temporarily markings like these–see my “review” of the FriXion pen here.
Here the top is finished…ready for quilting on my domestic machine. I decided on straight line quilting to accentuate the sashing…
The quilting & binding is done! All that’s left is to take some photos and put it up for sale at the shop! 🙂
I was inspired by a recent YouTube Tutorial by the Missouri Star Quilt Company. I’ve always liked the look of houndstooth, and have some Moda solid grey, black and white that might work…
