Quilt Needs a Burlap Bed Skirt
Joining the Rolls
To join the rolls turned out easy also. Match the ends and measure and pleat as if they were one piece. Use as many pins as you need to keep everything in line. I’m sorry that it was hard to get a good photo that shows. It ended up mine matched up at the pleats so I just laid it on top and pinned it and went on pleating for the first joining. The second didn’t fall in the same place, but with enough pins, it went together and I was able to go on with the pleating.
Continue Pinning Pleats
The corners turned out well. The pleats came right on the corners so the burlap draped down perfectly. It took 3 1/2 rolls of the burlap to complete the bed skirt. When I came to the end, I left enough burlap to turn under and whip stitch to prevent it from raveling. Needle and thread is enough to keep it in place.
Designed more than 10 years ago, Jinny’s Moon Glow pattern has never been out of print! Originally created as a block-of-the-month quilt, it is designed as a teaching pattern for beginning to intermediate level quilters. Compass blocks alternate with luminously shaded log cabin blocks.
Each of the blocks has been selected to teach a variety of skills, beginning with the easiest block and ending with the most difficult. Blocks include options for strip piecing, using templates and foundation piecing.
Adjusting for King Size Bed
How could you not fall in love with this Jinny Beyer quilt kit?! It had the perfect colors for my rustic bedroom and looks fantastic up against that big wooden headboard. The paper pieces was both fun to learn and difficult at times. Each block has it’s own name and all the stars blocks are different, 13 in all plus 12 log cabin blocks that are the same. Because we have a king size bed and it finished at 86″, I added an 11″ border to 3 sides to center the quilt top on the bed.
Finished Burlap Bed Skirt
I couldn’t be happier with the way it all turned out! Just perfect! The quilt is showcased on the bed and the burlap bed skirt is the icing on the cake! What do you think about the burlap bed skirt?
