18th finish for 2017 and how to do the partial seam

Here it is - another finish. It turned out 44" x 53".

I used three colors of quilting thread

Isn't interesting how these two quilts look so different even though they were made the same way?

Here is how to sew the partial seam. Here is the quilt top before. You start sewing it together from the top.

Once you sew the first seam the rest just falls in place. I marked my first seam to sew with tape for you.

Here it is sewn

The next piece to sew is that lattice looking fabric

When I lined the fabric up - I always sew from the seam to the raw edge - the lattice fabric was a bit longer. No problem, I will just trim that off after I sew the seam

Next piece to sew is the thin striped fabric. I just put wrong sides together and sewed

I do press as I sew each seam. The next seam is the circle stain fabric. As you can see each seam just falls into place.

That's a very clever pattern amd you could get dozens of different looks from it. Blue ones next?

Not anything like I thought! That does look easy. I think there might be a herringbone quilt in the near future! The

You can definitely get a lot of different looks from that pattern.

I thought it would be complicated but you made it look easy! I love how this turned out.
