I finished sewing all my squares together! Hurrah! Please excuse me while I do a happy dance around it!
Now, I don’t know much about sewing at all right now so I will tell you what I know about this quilt top:
I used 5 Moda charm packs (packs of pre-cut 5 inch fabric squares from the same range). The packs I used were: Bungle Jungle, Bloomin’ Fresh, Mixed Bag, Bartholo-Meow’s Reef and Pot Luck. Not all of those are current, and the fabric I want to use for the border is from one of those and I need to go on an Etsy hunt to find one.
My sewing machine is a Brother JS-23. It sews. No idea on any technical stuff! I used white Gutermaan (spelling?) thread. Aaaand that’s all the details I know!
The plan now is to track down the fabric I want for the border and then figure out what I want to back it with and put in the middle. To be honest I didn’t think much further than the squares for the top because it seemed like such a far-off dream in itself I didn’t think beyond it. It’s not taken me as long to do as I thought either, about 8 days from start to finish although I did work on it obsessively in the evenings when perhaps it would have benefited me more to go to bed!
I’ve a couple more works-in-progress to share with you soon but I haven’t taken any decent photos yet.
