    Here's my prior post from day 2: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-154820-1.htm

    Today I quilted and bound the 2 Times the Charm that I pieced and basted yesterday. I did the faux piped again. I always pieced a table topper/wall hanging. It's basted and I've done a few lines of quilting so far.

    I absolutely love "2 Times the Charm". The piping really sets it off. Beautiful work.

    Oh look how beautifully all those cornerstones line up. I struggle with that all the time.

    Great work and it looks like fun, but a lot of patience. Each of the quilts has its own unique personality!

    Thank you. The 2 Times a Charm is my original design to use the charm packs my mom gave me for Christmas.

    I strip pieced the the sashing and the cornerstones so that each unit had a sashing and a cornerstone. Then I added sashing to the rectangle and pieced this unit with the sashing/cornerstone unit to make a bigger block. It was way easier than trying to make 98 1" cornerstones :-).

    faux piped binding is a technique that someone mentioned here a few weeks ago. It's super easy to do!

    Enjoy! It's addicting. I've probably given about 2 dozen impromptu lessons on how to do faux piped binding this week.
