321  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I'm scared of quilting...help! **updated w/ pics on: February 03, 2009 07:09:03 PM
It looks fabulous.  I really want to do this pattern.  I see it so much on here and it always looks sharp.

My advice for colour combos.... take a digital photo of them laid out.  Its amazing what a little perspective can do.

Corners aren't bad. If you're good enough with math to understand a 45 degree angle, its pretty simple. Stop sewing 1/4 inch from the edge, take it out of the machine.  Fold the binding up at a 45 degree angle and bring straight back down...it will line up with the edge of the quilt if done right.

Hopefully taht supplements the tutorial well.

I had searched.... I ended up with tons of stuff to file through that weren't relevant.

May as well post this now because who knows when the back will get on.

I made this from a pattern in a magazine.  When I looked at the pattern, I realized it would end up as a 27 inch square quilt.  I wanted something bigger so I doubled the pattern.  Not sure that was a great idea.  I had to make it work.  Overall, I wasn't thrilled with the pattern.  There was a LOT of wasted fabric. 

That said, I made it work. I wanted the brown paisley fabrics to be the focal.  I tried some digital shots to figure out where they should lay.  I think the pink would have dominated anywhere... like it did here.  Still nice.  A bit too shiny for me.  But I love the fabric.

For those of you who use a regular sewing machine to machine quilt the top, how do you do it?  How do you manage a quilt in a sewing machine.  I have a hard enough time doing a simple grid let alone some sort of pattern. Do you not get bunching?  And what about pins getting in the way?

I *just* finished this.  (almost 2.5 hours of handstitching the binding :/)  It had a sister quilt that was about 4x4 feet.  This one is about 27inches square. 

Et voila!
