Quilt PracticeApril 6, 2013 4:23 pm quilting, sewing
I had planned to start a tutorial on how to sew pajama pants, but apparently, the quilts had other ideas. I can’t find the pictures of the pajama pants in progress, but I can easily find the pictures of the quilt blocks, and quilts that I have been practicing recently, so I can share those with you.
These are a couple of settings that I was playing around with when practicing the Orion’s Star quilt block pattern. This pattern is one of Eleanor Burns’ patterns, and I just love it because it combines a star block with the Log Cabin block. Although I finished the quilt top, I don’t quite remember which setting I decided on, so I will have to take a picture and share that with you soon. This quilt has not been quilted because I plan on hand quilting it, and I am still working on hand quilting another practice quilt. Of course, I tend to have several projects going at one time, so I might get this one put together with batting and backing and start quilting it as well.
The picture above is a quilt that I made for my oldest grandson a few years ago. It was also a practice quilt, but I kind of like how it turned out. The quilting isn’t the best, but thankfully, my grandson didn’t care about all the quilting mistakes!
I am off to enjoy some beautiful weather today and since it is nice enough to be out and about, I just might have to visit a local quilt shop or two for some much needed “fabric therapy”.
Happy Sewing! And Happy Quilting!
