piecing, quilting, teaching

Go Mini or Go Home a couple of helpful hints

A few students have asked questions about the color run and how many strips to cut.

These are the two gradations (color run) packs that I used from Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabric to create the quilt top. Cherrywood will be at the show. A color run can and should be colors and fabrics that you LOVE. So if you love small scale prints or Kaffe Fasset or Tula Pink fabrics by all means use them. We can determine a layout for you.

The other question: how many strips to cut – let’s limit it to 5 max. This gives the opportunity to use the rest of the fat quarter for the corner squares and half-square triangles and perhaps to piece the backing for the quilt.

The final other question – do you need to bring feet for the machine? No. BERNINA will be providing feet!

I’ve enjoyed the emails coming in!

Happy Quilting!
