Bias 3 quilt top

I got this quilt top finished up today. I am absolutely thrilled with how it came out.

Bias 3

It’s 60″ x 75″ and the longest stripes are 94″ long. I knew when I came up with the design that I would need to work hard to keep the lines straight. I pieced the entire thing in my Modern Solids, and I’m so happy with how crisp and straight it came out.

I thought I’d show a few photos I took as I made it…

Pressing played a big role in the process… I pressed all of the seams open to keep it nice and flat.

Piecing this many 1 1/2″ stripes was a bit nuts, but worth it in the end!

Once I’d finished piecing it all, I put it up on my design wall, drew on where to trim and squared it up! Here’s a couple of pretty photos of it…
