Quilt Top Notes/Techniques

Flying geese templates for sawtooth stars were too small so used “Square in a Square” ruler to create them.  Also used ruler to create half diamond sections for centre star blocks.  Because the bias was opposite of normal, interesting patterns were created once washed.

Quilting Notes/Techniques

Ditch quilted around stars using walking foot.  Walking foot stars in borders.  Lots of turning the quilt.  Used Sew Easy cotton batting from spotlight.  Lots of fuzzies and bearding while quilting.  Had to pre-wash batting.
