Today is FINALLY here!! It’s the LAST DAY of ‘Sew Cal Gal’s GO! Ahead and Show Some Love Blog Hop’! I hope that you have hopped over to Stacey’s (Driving Miss Stacey) and Tracey’s (The Peony Teacup) before you came here…if not hurry over!! I’m sure they have something wonderful that they would like to share!
I have posted the whole week’s agenda just in case you may have missed someone…there’s still time to hop on over~
What an honour it is to share some AccuQuilt GO! love with you! Let’s get right at it..for my project I chose to GO! for the Red and White…borrowed the Winding Way die from a friend…and started cranking!
This is what I made~
Now before I started sewing this quilt, the first thing I did was Google ‘videos on sewing curved seams’…there are tons of videos out there and I watch them ALL!! I did not use one pin while stitching these curved blocks thanks to those videos and the accurate cutting of the AccuQuilt GO! Now I am not saying my blocks are perfect but FOR ME THEY ARE AS PERFECT AS THEY ARE GOING TO GET!!… AND I LOVE this quilt!! Thanks to the videos this quilt went together very quickly and was not difficult! If I can do it, YOU can do it!! For this reason, I am not going to go into detail about how to join the blocks…just…watch the videos!
For the border, I used the 1 1/2” strip cutter…cut out tons of red and white strips…
Sewed them together in rows…
and then laid them across the 1 1/2” strip cutter going the other way…
..then using Valdani Perle Cotton and a big eyed needle…
I marked the quilt using a Mark-B-Gone pen and big stitched quilted each flower and the borders…
And here she is finished and taking in a few rays around the pool!
My only wish was that I had made her bigger…much bigger…but I am happy with what I GO!T!
