The chisel star tops are pieced and on the frame! I loaded one large backing to quilt both one right after the other.
I was trying to use up odd bits of batting. I ran short on the second one. So I thought I’d show you how I deal with this. First, I lay a second piece of batting to overlap the short piece.
You never want to have to add to your batting while the quilt is already on the frame, but it happens!
Next, cut a line through both layers from one side to the other.
And remove the thin strips from each piece. Now he two parts should line up perfectly.
Now you se a needle and thread to carefully whip stitch the two together. Don’t pull tightly or you will end up with a ridge.
That’s it! It’s easier than it sounds. These are the pantograph I used. They are available from Urban Elementz .
Have a great day!
