YEARS ago I made this top when Amanda Jean made hers. (Tutorial here.) I know. I know. I reference her a lot. I made A LOT of her quilts in the past, and I am now getting around to finishing them. It's just how it's going to go.
You can see that I made some cutting mistakes -- trying to be fast and cutting two at once. I originally started as a garment seamstress (amateur only, of course), so cutting things out with right sides together is my default. This method, of course, does NOT work when making whirligig blocks. That's just a little tip from me to you.
You get them going in opposite directions. So I made more than I had originally planned, ran a white border around three sides and put the opposite blocks around the outside.
I suppose if I never point these things out, they might go unnoticed, but this isn't the first time. THIS is the first time I messed these up. (Success stories here and here.)
Jumbled up, can't see the mistakes.
Santorini print on the back.
Momo's It's a Hoot green dot for the binding again. Perfect. This quilt is one that my oldest daughter will be taking to college with her in a month. Finished EARLY! What?! Motivation, I guess.
Linking up with Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Maybe next week I'll show you some UNfinished projects. We know have a ton of those . . . In the meantime, happy quilting!
