I spent time today sewing the parts of this quilt together. There were no logical seams in the entire quilt. Each piece had to be ironed to square it up, measured and trimmed to fit. The sewing had to be accurate. Sometimes seams had to be sewn corner to corner and other times it was necessary to leave one end of a seam open a little.There were many places I had to inset one piece into another. I’m very pleased with the completed top. If it weren’t for my strong clothing construction background I don’t think I could have made this happen.
I’ll take that Gold Medal for challenging piecing now!
I hope I also win one for quilting this!
This is the final arrangement of the quilt before I sewed it together.
You can see proportions change slightly when you sew something like this together.
The L shaped pieces you see are really large rectangles, yet to be trimmed.
There are also others than under and overlapped each other.
The size of certain sections could not be accurately determined until the adjacent sections were sewn together.
