Description

Made for my cousin's daughter Hazel.

Using self-modified version of "Carnival Dance" pattern to use 5"  charm packs. Adding in extra borders to help increase size. Used Red  Pepper Quilts http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2010/04/hour-glass-block-tutorial.html hour  glass block tutorial. Had some issues with stretching on the  bias. Needed to pay more attention to making sure seams would match up  when sewing them into four hour glass units.

Used formula for  side triangles from Quilter's Academy Vol 2. Tried to follow their method  for trimming the quilt, but was not very successful. Next time need to  measure out from centre.

Center ditch quilted with Rasant cotton  wrapped poly thread. Quilted a large spiral in the pinwheel blocks with  King Tut 40wt variegated thread (Cleopatra). Quilted running spirals in  yellow sashing with free motion X through red cornerstones. Quilted  curls in white setting triangles, piano keys in red border, double loop  in white border, "l" loops in yellow border (with the name "hazel" in  cursive in one corner), and open spirals in blue border.

Made  matching pillowcase with left over fabric. Used "The Quilter" pattern,  but modified to use a French seam on the inside. Needed to take a deeper  second seem to avoid the first coming through. Needed to hammer the  cuff joint to make it more flexible to sew through.
