So you have got all your fabrics cut up and now we are ready to sew!
First you want to separate your charms into piles in the order you would like them to be sewed in.
You will need to sew 9 charms together 12 times. In other words 12 rows of 9 charms. * please note that all seem allowances are 1/4 inch (typical of all quilt seems)*
To sew 9 charms together I first sew sets of 2 charms in a chain (not stopping in between sewing each set).
Then I sew the sets together creating two sets of 4. Sew the two sets of 4 together. Lastly, I sew the last one on to create a long strip of 9.
When you have all 12 rows of 9 charms sewed together you will need to sew rows together.
When I sew rows together I like to pin the intersections (where the seems are) to ensure good points.
To make things easier on you, sew 4 rows together at a time to create 3 sets of 4 rows.
Then sew each set of 4 rows together to end up with a completed quilt top!
Next week we will be making our quilt sandwich so make sure you have your batting and minky fabric ready to go.
You are going to be amazed at how fast and easy it is going to be to finish this quilt up. Just one more week to wrap up our first quilt along quilt. Wow... does time fly when you are having fun.
To make things even more interesting I am giving away one Fat Quarter Shop fabric pack next week! I LOVE these packs so much I figured I should share in my love. So stay tuned next week for your chance to win it!
Have fun sewing!
Take care mucho,
