Can you name these four quilting styles and where you would use them? Which is the odd one out?
Day 6 already! The great thing about this challenge is I get to quilt every day or at least get in a little sewing as well as use my camera. But that's not all, I also share some of my quilting tips too. Today's task was to make a 9-patch block and show you why I prefer to press my seams to one side.
Everyone loves feather quilting including me. I don't do it enough! Is it easy? as long as you know how to free-motion quilt, then yes. I have to say it is very difficult if you try to accomplish it with straight quilting.
Today is the third day of our photo challenge and so far I've taken 101 photos or more. Ok, so I'm working on my new online class. The photos aren't actually for the challenge. Instead, I decided my challenge photo would be nothing to do with my class at all. I took a dinner break and thought dinner looked so good, I'd snap a shot and share it. And to keep it on the quilty theme, I set it on one of the table mats I made earlier this year.
Today I was making snowball corners. A snowball corner is when you sew through the diagonal of a square and flip one half of it over to form a triangle. You can see me ready to sew through the diagonal in the photo below.
Today I began Cricket's 30 day Photo Challenge. That is, taking a photo every day for 30 days. How about joining me? You can find out more here: http://tech.v7n.com/2012/06/21/one-photo-a-day/
