Spines Quilt pattern (free from Windham). It was released with the Uppercase fabric collection and it couldn't be more perfect! As you might remember, the Uppercase fabric collection is based on the designs featured on the spines of Uppercase magazine. So it was perfect to use the fabrics in a quilt design that mimics the look of a book or magazine. I have a family full of book lovers, so I know this will be a big hit with all of them! Fork Pins by Clover to work. I pressed all of my seams to the side, then nested the seams when I was matching up rows. I used fork pins at each seam to make sure they lined up and then I sewed right over them. I'm not usually one to sew over pins - but the fork pins are so thin, it was no big deal! It really saved a lot of sewing time because there was no starting and stopping constantly as I stitched each row. I know my piecing wouldn't look nearly as good as it does (not saying it's perfect!) without the fork pins. Have you tried them yet? My only warning - they are CRAZY sharp! kits available in the shop and online! Stop in to see the quilt in person and check out the Fork Pins. BLOG SPECIAL! The Spine Quilt Kit and Forks pins are BOTH 20% off until August 31st! In store or online - snatch them up while supplies last!
