Matching Points

I've recently been working on a Quilt for my son. I decided to really think about matching up my points. On all my other Quilts I've always been so excited about seeing the end result, I'd not given this as much attention as I should have. Ironing my seams the opposite way to my next row will ensure a nice snug fit when pinning and sewing together. Click on the link below for more helpful advice. 






I recently showed you how to cut your own 2 1/2 inch strips. I've now put the main panel together on my Quilt. Here's a basic step by step guide to my Quilt in progress.


Firstly pin your strips together to make your instructed rows




After sewing your strips together you will create a large row which I then cut into squares




Arrange your squares together to your required design and sew to make your rows. Number your rows so you know which order to sew them in.



Once happy with your design pin rows together and sew your completed panel




My next step is to add another row with the red strip. I feel that will balance out the look of my Quilt. I also need a border and backing. I'm looking forward to finishing this for Christmas. The Winters Lane Collection has a Wintery Christmasy feel about it. I see this coming out every Christmas for years to come.

Please contact me with any questions, I'm happy to help - Helen -
