As you can see, I didn’t get to finish my fussy square quilt this month. It will be my #whipyourwips2015 for March. I’m about halfway through ripping the papers off the back. Sigh. It’s taking forever! I trimmed my nails and now it’s impossible to rip those papers! Sheesh!

I’ll have a couple finishes to share soon :)

I finally busted out this much loved print from Alexander Henry “Zodiac” for a special Pisces bday girl.  I straight lined quilted the exterior on the diagonal.



On the interior, I continued the star theme. Using up some on my hoarded Lizzy House Constellations, along with some Cotton+Steel.



Wonder clips are essential!


I recommend grading your seams…removing the extra interfacing etc. It makes it much easier on your sewing machine to attach the binding.



I also recommend using a separating zip for the exterior. It just  makes it a whole lot easier to install. Once your done, it won’t be separating anymore but it’s still worth it for the installation portion. I also like that it’s a bit more heavy duty than the interior zips.




Now it’s off to the new owner :)
