Marilyns Quilt: Piecing the Text Panel

Well the process continued on a ‘make it up as you go along’ kind of way and next up was deciding where and how to insert the printed text panel.

I moved the paper practice piece about on the Friendship Braid top until I decided on the best spot.

deciding on placement of text panelthe top then went on the floor (of all places) to be squared up as it was too big to put on the table..

squaring up the Friendship Braid topI then unpicked the top and bottom row, cut where the panel was to go, stitched it in place down one side…

unpicked the top and bottom rows

pinning the other side in place for stitching

stitched the rest of the braid on the other side and re-stitched the unpicked top and bottom rows.

With the top now fully pieced and squared up the next stage was to ‘sandwich’ the layers together.

Until the next installment…

Thanks for stopping by….
