Last weekend I was helping a friend clean out her sewing room. In amongst her quilts was a shop sample she had made of Time Square which still needed to have binding on it. She had the binding fabric with the quilt so I said I would do it for her since she was going to give it to me anyway. That was one less job she had to do... and one more for me lol.
Last month I decided that I should take the blocks from "I Love Teddy" quilt pattern and put them up as individual blocks. This was a great idea because now if someone just wants one for a pocket on a tote or a couple for pillow cases, they don't need to purchase the whole pattern.
Today was one of those days when I should have been working but I got a little side tracked. I started playing with my flower blocks and teddy bear blocks and created some cushions and totes.
Over the past couple of weeks I made two blocks from the ABC's baby quilt. I made the T block and the S Block. Today I'm going to be a little creative and show you an idea I came up with when first making the T block.
Bonus Blogging: a continuation of the S Block from the ABC's baby quilt.
Last Tuesday I started making the blocks in the ABC's baby quilt pattern. I made T for turtle and I asked my readers what letter I should make next. Stephanie suggested "h o m a s" (the remaining lettings in my grandson's name Thomas) so this week I decided to make the S block.
I've been wanting to make a block from the ABC quilt for a while. I'd really like to make them all, but let's start with one.
Last week I made a Grandmother's Puzzle block. It was a difficult block becaues the shapes within it did not form any sort of easy construction grid. By this I mean, there is no where on the block that you can draw a straight line from one side to the opposite side without cutting through another piece. This is the reason I had to use a set-in seam.
Today I have been looking at my quilt pattern Autumn Daisy. I first made this in 2003 and it was later published by Arbee Designs in 2005. It has been a very popular pattern to sew and makes a delightful table setting.
Last week I told you about Fiesta Bargello and showed photos of me putting it together. This week I want to share with you how I quilted it. Often for bargello quilts, I will just quilt wavy lines along the design, but this time I wanted to do something a little different.
