You guys. I just finished my SIXTH quilt! That is crazy! Each quilt is special to me and therefore hard to let go. But when I make it with the intention of giving it away, that makes the pain a little easier. When I saw this pattern, I knew I had to make it. Not to mention, it is from my favorite fabric designers at Moda. This Sweet Talk Quilt is made up of fun pinwheel blocks and bright colors! It is sure to make any day a little brighter!
I found this pattern on Craftsy. AND it was on sale! Anyone who has ever made a quilt knows that it can get price-y. That is why I prefer to go with quilt kits to try and keep the price down.
Piecing the quilt is such a challenge. Your fabric cuts have to be precise in order for it to turn out square. Creating these pinwheels was so much fun though! I loved watching it come together block by block.
The one thing I absolutely despise about quilting is all of the ironing. So much ironing. You iron after every seem. It gets tedious. But it is a must. If you skip the ironing, you are condemning your quilt to a lifetime of puckering.
I had this quilted at a local shop in southwest Missouri and they do such a fantastic job! They also did the quilting on my Puddle Jumping Quilt. (You can check out that quilt HERE!)
It turned out better than I could have imagined! I love the backing too!
Binding the quilt is the best part! It provides a completeness that appeals to my OCD on the deepest level.
I can’t wait to give this to my friend! I know she will love it!
I’d love for you to pin this image!
