Sleeping Porch. Those pinks and greens... how could I resist but once I touched this all cotton lawn collection I was head over heels. I couldn't wait to jump in and make something with this but as usual my life had other ideas...
retreat project but never got to it.
great tutorials out there for making a triangle quilt but I found these tips from the Triangle Quilt Along at Sassy Quilter to be the best. I used the Triangle Squared ruler which solves the problem of offsetting your points. The cotton lawn isn't as sticky as quilting cotton so it was slow going pinning every seam when sewing but still good for chain piecing.
tips for quilting with lawn. I didn't prewash as they suggest but I did switch to a 70/10 sharp needle and used 50 wt Aurifil for the piecing. I don't find Best Press to be as effective on the lawn. Next time I may try regular old spray starch.
Quilter's Dream Wool from Fat Quarter Shop (with a few treats thrown in for free shipping). Hopefully their quick delivery will get it here before I lose my momentum... Dreaming of snuggling up with this one should keep me going! How do you find time to quilt when life gets crazy?
