Last fall I joined Quilting Jet Girls Alison Glass Charm Swap. It was my first swap ever and I was a bit excited.
Of course, once I received the charms, then the dilemma was what do I do with them. I am not the creative, out side of the box thinker. I am still the newby who is working on points and seam matching.
So I took the opportunity to match this quilt up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal
In this post from January OMG I played with layouts of HSTs. These are my favorite. I told you I’m not that creative. So I go with what works and don’t venture to far.
So I decided on this HST layout. This was the first time I did them as diamonds and they turned out pretty cute.
Of course, then I had to decide how to quilt it on my home machine. Oh, how about straight lines ( this is the only way I have quilted) no stretch of the imagination here.
I think it turned out rather cute. Used my standard striped for the binding. I am getting a bit better with sewing my binding. I am doing it all my machine. Still room to improve, but am getting better and don’t stress about it as much.
I used a wide Moda backing. Labeled and washed it up the other day and am done. Way before the end of January.
