I’m honored to have a quilt featured today at The Modern Quilt Guild.
This week is ‘Using What You Have’ and they asked my thoughts on scrap quilting and the inspiration for my “Sewing Circle” quilt.
This quilt is the original larger version of my Moda Bake Shop tutorial, Mod Circles Baby Quilt.
Thank you Modern Quilt Guild and hello to those of you visiting for the first time!
I don’t know about you, but I find a lot of times in my sewing/quilting that I’m quite impatient!
I decided to work on some precision sewing by trying my hand at triangles.
There are 144 triangles in this mini, and they have for sure tested my patience!
I’ve had to be careful in my cutting, making sure to pay attention to the grain of the fabric and definitely careful in piecing.
I started by only being able to stand piecing four or five triangles at a sitting which is kind of laughable! I just get so frustrated at having to focus.
Improv, I understand now why I love you so much. Purely carefree sewing!
I know if I keep practicing this precision thing will get easier.
How about you? Are you a pro at precision or do you struggle too? Any tips?
My littles are on winter break, so I’m off to enjoy the time with them at home!
