Quilting lesson 101 … measure accurately 7 times … AND measure one more time.
Measuring is very important when piecing together a quilt top that creates a pattern.
Consistency, consistency, consistency.
As I follow behind BFF in her piecing together a quilt top she was making for her granddaughter … measuring and consistency … well, BFF musta forgot the first lesson.
She complained of how the top was “growing” at a slant.
I have taken apart allllll 22 rows BFF had sewn together … re-measured, added where needed and then re-sewn the rows back together. Whew.
I created six rows today from start to finish and attached them. Lo and behold … I’m getting there.
Weigh, measure … weigh, measure. Consistency, consistency, consistency.
Rough diamonds may sometimes be mistaken for worthless pebbles.
