Overcoming Avoidance – Part Two, Quilting

August 14, 2019

My Progressive Project this time was to choose a Row by Row pattern from a large collection. In the interests of training myself to overcome avoidance, I chose the pattern I liked the least. It involved sewing triangles on the bias. I have a hard enough time with strips cut on the straight of grain, so I generally run screaming into the night when bias triangles are requested. However, there were cute fish to applique over wonky centers, so I gave it a go. I didn’t have spray starch, but I did have sizing. I spritzed the squares before I cut them, and handled the fabric as little as possible. The quilting goddesses were with me, because the centers are good enough for the fish to swim naturally, rather than lined up lip to tail. They still cover most of that seam intersection, but I know it wasn’t a necessity to place them there!

Luck and wisdom!
