Well this post is a long time coming. Not because it took me long to sew together the quilt top (it actually went together pretty quickly). But it was over a week after I finished the quilt before I could even take any photos! A combination of rainy weather and a couple of late days at work where it was already dark when I got home and all of a sudden more than a week had passed. So without further ado, here is my finished Bungalow quilt top!
I haven’t worked a whole lot with precuts and I noticed when working with this layer cake that the 10″ by 10″ squares seemed to not be the right size. I cut them in half (I measured 5 inches in from the left side) but when I paired them up with the 5″ precut white charm squares, many of the layer cake strips were too narrow.
Luckily this pattern was pretty forgiving and with a lot of glue basting to match seams and easing of the fabric, I was able to make my seams line up well enough. But I was a little annoyed about the inaccuracy. Has anyone else noticed this with precuts before?
I love the colors in this quilt. There are some great jewel tones and really saturated prints! I stressed a little bit trying to get the colors and prints balanced and I think I ended up doing pretty good!
I’ve bought some yardage from the line for the backing and am going to do a little piecing for it but hopefully I’ll be able to get this quilted up soon!
I can’t wait to finally have a quilt I get to keep!
