Rainbow Popsicle Quilt Along - Week 3


This week marks the halfway point in the Rainbow Popsicle Quilt Along.  So far, we have chosen our fabrics, cut them out, constructed our Half Square Triangles and this week we are sewing all the Quilt top pieces (background and popsicle) together.

Week 3 
Now that you have completed your HST's you will be able to start constructing the Quilt top. Each of your pieces should be labelled and this will make the process much easier as you work through sewing the pieces together.  If you have sewn all your Popsicle together this too, will make it quicker.

Post your pics from the weeks prompts on Instagram to - #rainbowpopsicleqal#rainbowpopsiclequilt and #tiedwitharibbonpatterns.  It also helps to tag me - @tiedwitharibbon to make sure I see your post.

This is an exciting week as you see your quilt really take shape and see how quickly it all comes together.

Pins Matter
When it comes to pinning - yes I really do believe that the type of Pins you use matter and can make a big difference to your sewing.  I have taught many students over the years and a simple way to make a big difference in how you pin, is to use good quality, fine pins designed for Patchwork.  Big, bulky, thick pins will make things harder to line up - they disturb the fabric more when pinned through your fabrics and sometimes they can snag your fabric if they are rusted or have burs along them.  

Fine Pins for Patchwork are a worthwhile notion to have in your Quilting Toolbox - I like to use Clover Fine Patchwork Pins (as pictured below and this isn't a sponsored add - just my personal opinion).  They are sharp, nice and fine and are perfect for use when quilting.
