I've been sharing little bits of my guest room with you but I haven't shown you the most important (in my opinion) part: the quilt.
I've never made a quilt before and don't actually know what I'm doing so there won't be a tutorial here but I'm excited to show you what I've done so far.
All fabrics in this quilt are from Pat Bravo's Indie line. I bought them from Moona Fabrics (this isn't a sponsored post) and love the bright colours and fun patterns.
To start, I found a lovely picture on pinterest. The only problem was it didn't link to anything so I had to do some math and figure out sizes and measurements. Let me tell you, math is not my forte. Fortunately it all worked out.
I decided my meter stick and scissors weren't going to cut it (ahahah, I'm so punny) so I finally bought a rotary cutter and mat. I'm in love. Why did I not buy these tools sooner?
Anyway, once the pieces were cut I placed them on the bed. I decided I wasn't loving one of the fabrics but I'd bought extra so I swapped it out.
Next came the sewing, which was surprisingly quick. I pinned the pieces, and then ran them through the sewing machine.
My one piece of advice is one I read online but can't remember where: don't iron your seams. If you iron them, you can stretch the fabric. Instead, use the iron on the steam setting and press the seams flat.
Once each row was finished I sewed them together. This took a little shifting because, as I'd said, math is not my forte.
And that's where the project has stalled. School has been insane this year and I haven't had the time or energy to research how to make a border.
