First WIP Post of Summer 2013

It’s the first post of summer–the first Works In Progress post, thanks to Lee, of Freshly Pieced.

Trimming Up Ruler

I put together the sections for the Schnibbles block, trimming it up as the pattern recommended (we’re doing Dulcina this month–see Sherri’s blog for more info).

Trimmed UP1

Whoa!  Big Shrinkage.  (The trimmed up squares are on the right.)  If I make this quilt in the future, I’ll try to figure out the dimensions so that the trimmed up block doesn’t lose an inch in each direction.

Dulcinea Center

Final center section, all sewn together.  Now the borders.  Because I have so much going on in the quilt, I’m looking to build some quieter borders than are shown in the design.  But I’m putting this aside for now, to tackle my Big Project: Quilting the English Paper Pieced Quilt:

  1. Ha- shrinkage!? I love your positivity- I’d call it wastage!! Whatever you call it, it’s going to be a great quilt! And how exciting that you are quilting your EPP project.

  2. OOOOOOhh, the EPP quilting is divine!!! Don’t you hate ‘shrinkage’? It is going to be outstanding when completed…..can’t wait!

  3. The Schnibbles looks great. There is a lot of trimming in that design. I wonder how much bigger it would be without all the trimming.

    Have fun quilting!
