Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Straight Strip Sets…..

Say that 3 times fast….. STRAIGHT…..STRIP…..SETS!!

Not only is it a tongue twister, but it can be an issue when you are creating a Bargello quilt…..

….and that is what I have been doing this past week. The quilt is due at tonight’s quilt guild meeting and, amazingly, I had it finished FOUR days ago. That is probably a record for me with Challenge Quilts!!

I will talk more about the design process on Thursday and thru the week, but today I wanted to show how I sew and iron my strip sets to ensure that they are even and that the seams are straight.

As I sewed, I put together this video to show you the process.

Be sure to come back on Thursday when I will talk about the design considerations in this Bargello Challenge!!

In this blog, I post DAILY stories about creativity, techniques, tools of the trade, and lots more about the wonderful art of quilting. If you are enjoying these posts, please subscribe to be notified of each new blog as it becomes available.
