A while ago back in the Summer, I purchased some moda squares just because I liked the patterns & colours. They have sat in my stash as I have never been too sure what to do with them. To be honest, I still don’t know, yet I’ve started to try & create something.
All I am sure of is it will be a blanket. I have no idea of a pattern, scheme or plan. I’m just sewing & going with the flow. Bit by little bit.
The task so far….
One of my New Years resolutions is to get back into the sewing den & get some more sewing done!
It was a pleasure to have an excuse when I was asked to make another baby quilt. The babies name is Molly rose, so I wanted to add this in, so when I came across the lettered block fabric it started my imagination to flow.
I mixed in some other fabrics including some ‘rose’ print to tie in with the name. Embroidered her date of birth on a heart appliqué & away I went.
I made my own bias binding using the fabrics used. (I so need to practice this binding malarkey!, I used the walking foot for the first time too)
I hope baby Molly likes it.
I’m in between projects and unsure of my next move so I pulled out my patchwork quilt. I have been hand sewing the squares so far but now that my sewing machine is up and running I have used it this evening. I am so impressed with how much faster the whole thing is. I flew through 4 rows in next to no time.
Im not sure what the correct method is or even if there is one. I’m just happily sewing my squares together. I’m not sure how big to make it either. I suppose I will know when to stop!
Once again my lovely kitties thought it would be nice to help. They love laying all over my material and giving me a helping hand! Little imps !
I managed quite a lot of sewing last night of my patchwork quilt. I am stopped in my tracks today as I need to cut some more squares. I am using 5″ squares and don’t really know how big to make the whole thing? I keep placing it on my bed to compare the size.
I will but a boarder on it too.
