I do… do you know what webbing a quilt top is? It is a little trick I noted watching Quilt Cams with Bonnie Hunter.. she talks about it on her blog in this article too!
You see the current quilt I am piecing to hand quilt has a center panel surrounded by lots of 2 1/2″ & 4 1/2″ squares in a pattern that I designed. Here is the design..
And here it is in reality once webbed together to hold the pieces in place then stitched together as it was laid out….
|I am loving how precise my piecing is becoming in this pic 🙂 Thanks Wendy Gontier!!!|
The fabric at the bottom of the pic is the next border to go around.
This is the center of my design however and used fabrics I have been collecting for about a year all starting with this panel! I am loving this project 😀
The Byrum Family Quilt thus far has been lots of fun… now I am working on the next “circle” around the quilt of all different kinds of quilt blocks… and I am webbing each 12 1/2″ block together for an easy finish too…
Hope you take time to read Bonnie’s article… and let me know if you web or not when putting a top together… I am always looking for more accurate ways to piece a quilting puzzle together… do you have any tricks or tips? Leave them in the comments… I reply to all comments too!
