A few years ago I visited a quilt shop. This "sane" quilt hang on the wall and I fell in love with the colors and the design. It made me want to turn the blocks.
No need to say I bought the fabrics and the pattern.
I started to sew all 42 blocks by hand, next I sewed them together following the design on the first picture. When I had almost finished I realized this quilt was going to be enormous. Each block is 6,5" that means 39" x 45,5", that is more than 1 m square. Too big for my home as this design needs space.
I decided to rearrange the blocks into a 20 blocks quilt.
Here I have hand/machine sewed all blocks together.
The white lines indicate where I basted the backing.
Till now I haven't found the perfect method to sew two pieces of fabric together with seams that meet exactly where they are supposed to meet.
I want to share with you what I tried this time, for now the best method for me.
I took a threaded needle from top to bottom exactly in the seam.
Next from bottom to top about 2 mm at the right side of the seam.
Again from top to bottom exactly in the seam (not showed).
Next about 2 mm left of the seam.
And another time exactly through the seam and fasten the thread.
The result after hand sewing the two intersections.
Next I machine stitched the whole seam.
I stitched all the blocks together this way and most of them look pretty good.
I have not a clue why some of the seams are so stubborn.
