What a great little mini and you finished it so fast! Great idea for the quilting
Love your latest mini...awesome fabric
Wendy, What a cute and colorful quilt! I recognize the little red house fabric and remember when we bought it together :)
Carolmarie LOL Carol - I've used partial seams a time or two to correct something when I didn't want to tear a whole piece out.
HawkFan Thanks, Audrey. It came together pretty fast once I got the hang of the technique (and it is small!!). The quilting just made sense to me. And yes, I think we have all done partial seams from time to time to avoid ripping apart a top! LOL!
True Thanks, Mary!
Carolmarie Thanks, Carol! I found the process interesting and at first it was a tad confusing. Because you are sewing a lot of partial seams as you go, and then going back and joining them, you have to finger press...and so I felt like things were getting wonky. But eventually it all came together just fine and got easier as I went forward.
Dtscrapper Thanks, Paula! Yup, I totally remember buying this with you!!! And those little houses are so cute! It was fun to pull out some of my favorite "finds" for this little quilt!
Charwirfs Thank you :)
I took that class too and am really looking forward to trying this technique. Thanks for sharing your project. I love the blue polka dotted accent fabric you used!
dinder1 I found the technique fun once I did a few blocks...hope you'll have fun with it too! The polka dot fabric is actually a charcoal (even though it looks blue in the photo!)...I wanted something dark so I'm glad it worked! Thanks for your nice comment :)
Carolmarie I don't know how often it is used. Sarah Fielke's book goes into detail on how to do it...and she uses it often, I think. It is just a different way to piece and gives you some leeway in terms of construction of blocks.
