This skirt is taking longer than expected but I love it! I used 5″ squares to create the block, traced the skirt pattern onto wax paper and positioned it over the fabric. I had to add a few squares on the sides and layered a piece of white Kona muslin underneath the block and cut the two out at the same time. I cut the front and back out separately, one side is predominantly red while the other is predominantly turquoise — there is no front or back to this skirt.
I quilted the block and the muslin together using a straight stitch 1/4″ on each side of the block seams and repeated this step for the back. Once the quilting was complete, I sewed up the sides of the skirt.
I’m going to add a 2″ band at the bottom but haven’t decided whether I should use a solid or a print.
In other news, I finished my Bear Paw block, hurray! After I resized the corner pieces, everything fell into place.
Hair cut today, W00t! Have a great Saturday everyone!
