Aiming for Accuracy

I’m participating in Mishka’s Playground Aiming For Accuracy Quilt Along for 2015 The quilt along runs from February through November with 18 total lessons.

Delightful Stars – Quilting Lessons 1 thru 5

Lesson 5 - After

I finished stitching in the ditch which, thankfully, eliminated the majority of Pinmoors. Because of the density of my pin basting and the size of the quilt, managing the quilt without the Pinmoors catching on each other and popping off has been a challenge. However, the pins stayed on and I managed not to draw blood…ha. The quality of pics while the quilt is still on the quilting table is not that great. So I’ve decided to lessen the number of times I pull this baby off the table to take pics by consolidating the lessons for posting my progress.

Delightful Stars – Basting with Pinmoors

Basting Delightful Stars

Michele Foster of Mishka’s Playground hosts fabulous quilt-alongs each year on  her facebook group, Aiming for Accuracy.  Each quilt along emphasizes improving cutting and piecing techniques to improve quilting accuracy. Delightful Stars is the wonderful pattern she designed for her 2014 quilt along.  I missed the beginning of the quilt along but purchased the pattern anyway late in 2014 after seeing what other members of the group were posting. I finished piecing the top in late July 2015. I set it aside while I got caught up on other projects. I further held off until I felt confident I had finally mastered tension on my Gammill Charm. That day has finally arrived and it’s time to baste and move forward with this baby.
