So, this is not what I had in my head. I believe this is referred to as a Zipper Quilt. I was laying out my colors in a way I thought would complement the design of the “Zipper quilt”. I mean, it is OK, but somehow I had something else pictured. Not sure why. I laid it all out first, but then when it is all together I am surprised. Usually, I don’t things things on my design board and like them better when they are sewn together.
The positive about this quilt, is that the blocks sew together really fast. I chain pieced them, but in a sort of odd way. I had 2 charm packs that I cut in half. Then I cut 2.5 inch strips and sewed each of my 2.5 by 5.5 charm pieces to each 2.5 inch strip. I had a 42″ strip with a bunch of my charms sewed to it and then just cut it apart. Can’t remember how many strips I used, maybe 5. Then it was just a matter of arranging and sewing them all together.
I do plan on quilting this in the near future. May get brave and do something new (at least for me). I will have to do some practicing first though.
