Quilt Top Notes/Techniques
Got a 21 fat quarter set of Start Wars The Force Awakens fabric.
I used the Quilt in a Day HST trimmer to make 6″ finished HSTs. Fortunately the fat quarters were a true 21″ wide (I didn’t pre-wash). I used my signature block technique to add in the solids for the lightsabers – I just used 2.5″ strips.
I used left over strips from the fat quarters to make the cornerstones and blocks in the borders.
I should really write a proper pattern for this quilt.
Attempted to quilt on my friend’s Tin Lizzie longarm, but it kept skipping stitches. Not sure what the issue was. This is the first time I’ve used this batting.
