I had some time for a ME project so I loaded this cheater panel on the machine yesterday. It was given to me in a bunch of fabric a couple of years ago. It’s now ready to become a charity quilt for next Christmas.
A simple feather around the outside.
Meandering stars in the background.
Color threads on the back.
This is the next quilt to go on the machine. It will just barely fit and has several issues. The most visual issue is the friendly borders. You can see in the bottom of the photo that one side is larger than the other. This is from not measuring and cutting the borders before putting them on. I do so many quilts like this that it’s no longer a problem. It’s just something I must work with carefully to make the quilt come out square. When this one is finished I’m going to put it on my helpful hints blog as a step by step tutorial. I already have one or two posts about friendly borders but one more won’t hurt.
