At the beginning of March I set my one goal for the month at Elm Street Quilts. Of course each month has several goals, but the OMG always has priority.
This month the priority is finishing my improv triangle quilt from the sew along hosted by Nicholas Ball (#quiltsfromtheattic) on Instagram (#improvtrianglesewalong) .
Progress quilting lines 0.5" apart on Friday morning.
For the first time I used the quilt tacking feature on my sewing machine when layering anything larger than a shopping bag, but not entirely successfully. This feature requires the fabric to be pulled through manually, the feed dogs being lowered, but I haven't mastered that fully it would seem, and the fabric bunched up a little. Not severely, so snipping the tacking thread here and there was enough to get the whole thing flat again.
Friday afternoon I finished quilting
and this time even remembered to attach a label before quilting:
There are no prizes for guessing the origin of the backing fabric!
Tuesday 24 March I finally finished sewing down the binding and the hanging sleeve.
Measurements: 68 x 65 cm ( 26.5 x 25.5 in)
