    Default Latest video questions - Five and Dime

    My next project will be the latest Jenny video of the Five and Dime Quilt. Can't wait, but have a question. Should I have concerns about fraying due the the placement/sewing of the charm pack pieces??? I love Kansas Troubles Moda line. Here is a link to explain this question. If anyone has made this I would appreciated your comments and experience. Happy New Year!!!

    When you sew the charm square to the layer cake, you could zig zag the edges. Or, use a paper backed fusible. I'm just tossing out ideas. I can see some fraying if it's washed.

    Re: New Tutorial! The Five And Dime Quilt.....
    Took this class, I have both the rulers and have made several of these quilts. Just an FYI my daughter has the first one I made and since she has a couple very hairy pets she washes it often and some of the inner blocks have loosened up, be sure to sew the blocks down well and I now do a heavy quilting on these.
    this was from Asta, on a post in general Discussion.

    So far that is the only person that I've seen say they have already made one of these quilts.

    I only watched the Five and Dime video once but I think the way the charm squares are sewn on that it would have to fray some. Personally I like the fraying look but not everyone does.

    Thanks all - just seemed like a fast way to use the precuts, but since I've also made a few rag quilts, just didn't want all the shedding after all the work. But love the Moda fabrics and pattern. Currently I think MSQC is out of the fabrics, book and template, so might be a bit. Thanks all and keep the suggestions coming!

    I thought Jenny commented not to sew them down too close to the edge because the quilt was designed to have some fraying, but by sewing farther away from the edge of the charm, the fraying would be controlled and it wouldn't come loose. I would think zigzagging the edge woul result in a less than desirable frayed looking edge, definitely not a soft fray.

    I have to agree with Jean. That was kind of my take on the whole quilt...was to have that frayed, rustic look. I may make something like it, but not necessarily KT fabric. Although, my personal taste runs to that kind of line.

    In the tutorial the teacher stressed not to stitch too close to the edge to prevent problems. Jenny stitched a seam that looked more like 1/4" and that would be fine. The instructor also mentioned that if your charms have the pinked edges they won't fray.

    The instructions were to sew 1/8 of inch away from the inside of the pinked edge...which should be 1/4 from the outside.

    I agree with the wide 1/4" seam - sewing down the charm piece. But would really like to see what it looks like with the fraying. If anyone has a pic, I would greatly appreciate it. Or a link would be good too! I like the rustic look and idea of the fraying, but a pic would be nice! Happy New Year to all my on-line quilters!
