Week 10: Finish quilt top
You’re staring down 3 big seams (ok, maybe more if you’re playing catch up). That’s all that stands between you and having a finished quilt top. You got this! You can piece these tricky seams without batting a perfectly mascaraed eyelash. You smell victory, and it smells like your favourite flavour of Thread Gloss.
There isn’t really anything new this week, except for the weight. Obviously, as the slabs become quadrants, and quadrants become halves, you end up with heavier and heavier pieces of quilt top. All that weight can be a drag, literally! So be sure to support your growing quilt top as you sew, or the weight might pull your top away from the needle. I set up my ironing board to the left of my tiny sewing table, just a touch higher than the table, and it did the trick for that last epic seam.
Remember to share your progress on Instagram using #glitchalong. I can’t wait to share all the finished quilt tops next week! The few eager beavers that I’ve seen so far have been AMAZING and it has been so cool, watching your Glitches progress from fabric pull to almost done!!
