#1: Thames Barge Quilt Top

So I’m taking part in a Facebook group this year to improve my crafting skills. The aim is to make 52 things and improve your skills along the way.

This is a finished quilt top that I started working on just before Christmas. It’s made from MODA’s More Hearty Good Wishes fabric range. I picked up two 5″ charm packs and used some cheap Ikea muslin as the cream fabric. This way I didn’t have to think about the design or colour.

Anyway, I focussed on getting the points really nice and accurate. They’re not really nice an accurate, but they’re better than the last quilt I did, so that’s an improvement. I feel like I’m ready now to tackle something more complicated with half square triangles.
