i stumbled here after googling "do i back stitch chain piecing"
and yes, i found out that no. i do not. haha
wish me luck. im starting on my 6th quilt soon. ive got the fabric laundered, but not pressed.
i am still reading the instructions over and over because i still feel like i am reading hieroglyphics.
i am going to attempt the diamondback scrap.
if im not crying by august, i will be lucky.
so far i have quilted:
1. sampler. hand pieced. hand quilted
2. kit: nursery quilt. machine pieced. hand quilted
3. strip quilt. hand ripped strips. no directions. just took a pic off images and went for it. machine pieced. machine quilted in the ditch. NIGHTMARE. for someone who is a beginner? yes, i ended up using fabric glue on some of the binding.......long story....
4. 9 patch. online purchased precut squares. machine pieced. machine quilted in the ditch.
5. kit. dinosaurs. m pcd. machine AND hand Quilted. this one was a challenge. finding the exact fabric online as in the pattern was tricky. and its my biggest-ish one so far. its not finished but almost. i have four more dinos to hand quilt. then a strait seem on two borders. its binded already and ready to get out of my house!
6. well, its the diamondback scrap. and im scared to death.
wish me luck!
