Southern Hospitality

Well, I got her done! What do you think? I really like this pattern. I made this using the Studio 180 Design Square/Squared and the Tucker Trimmer I. The center of the quilt is not difficult at all. Either are the migrating geese, but you must use your best skills and a true 1/4″ seam. I will be adding this to my class list.

    Superb craftsmanship! So, how much time does it take to do the cutting? The last time I quilted, I didn’t have a rotary cutter. I used regular scissors. How much time do you think I’d save using a rotary cutter? Also, from start to finish, how much time was invested? Thanks, Catherine πŸ™‚

      It’s not just the time you save it is quality of your pieces that will be better by using a rotary cutter, not to mention the fabric you save by using a rotary cutter. What I love about Deb Tucker products is how well organized the instructions are. Usually. When I teach a class I have to remake the lesson plan. But I don’t have to do that with Studio 180 Designs. They even give you both right and left handed instructions.

      I have been quilting for 10 years so I do have some skills. I made this top in about 10 days. I screwed up when I was cutting out the migrating geese and to go buy more fabric. I cut the pieces too large and when making pieced borders you must be precise.

      I hope I answered your questions. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!

        Yes, thank you so much! You answered my questions. 10 days is definitely an achievement by my standards. I’d probably double or triple that time. πŸ˜‰ I’ll also keep Studio 180 Designs in mind. In fact, I just checked Amazon and the prices were very reasonable. Your blog has inspired me to give it another try. Appreciate that. πŸ™‚

    i am machine quilting the southern hospitality quilt and need some suggestions for the migrating geese. I quilted a feather design in the background triangles and am not sure what to do with the others. Can I leave them alone?

      Oh Kelley, I wish I could give good advice, but I’m afraid I meander my quilts. Sorry I’m lame about quilting advice. I always admire Angela Walters and Jamie Wallen for their quilting expertise.
