Shimmer Begins

I crossed one more thing off The List and decided I didn’t need to wait to get ALL of the items done before starting Shimmer, a Cluck Cluck Sew pattern.

This will be the 3rd quilt from the Radiance bundle of FQs. After triple checking my cutting diagram, I counted my FQs and realized that I could get a twin size quilt from the remaining fabrics if I cut a pair of squares from each of the fabrics I used for the Starbursts in Atomic Starburst.  So, that’s the plan.

This is going to be slow going unless I get up the gumption to cut more than one FQ at a time.  The block uses chevrons, reverse chevrons, snowball corners and seam which are pressed open.  All of which slow me down.  But I’m confident it will be worth it in the end.

After struggling last night with the chevrons, I ordered the Simple Folded Corners Mini from the Quiltville Store. I’ve resisted ordering this, but last night I ended up trimming one of the chevron units then stitching it with a 1/4″ seam.  I really liked the results and it means I don’t have to keep fiddling with my needle position going back and forth between a 1/4″ seam and stitch on the line.
