Tulips N Anemones

When my sister and I pieced this quilt together (I cut and iron, she did the sewing), we pieced all the blocks the wrong way!  When I got home, I had to take take them all apart and redo.  This is what I have done so far.  I have yet to put the sashing and a border on it.  After that, I have to applique hearts in between the blocks.

I am glad the top is done!  Like I said earlier, this is one of the easiest pattern to make.  Perfect if you are a beginner.  Easy cutting and piecing together strips of fabric only!!

Ok almost done!!!  Just sewing the border and that's it!!  I won't be doing the quilting myself as I know I can't do as well as the pro!!!  I still do not have the confidence to do it on my own!!  I don't mind a small baby quilt but this one is a king size.  My Juki is in semi- retirement mode!! LOL  I have only been practising with it but without putting it on the frame!!

This is one of the best part in making a quilt top!!  Sewing the sashings and the borders!!!  I chose a dark brown print n cut it into 3" strips for the sashing.

I put together 36 blocks for this quilt.  Decided to piece together  a 6 x 6 because if I did a 5 x 6 the fall would not be enough at the sides.  I think with the sashings and border I might just get a nice drop at the sides.  I like the idea that I don't have to get all the strips in line with each other!!  I only have to make sure that the joints at the green blocks are joined correctly in the middle!!!!

The alternate block with the lighter shade of  brown!!

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

This is the first block with the dark brown print.  The alternate block will have a lighter shade of brown print.  At first, I thought of making all the blocks with the same fabric but I didn't have enough of the dark brown print so I have no choice but to make the alternate blocks with the lighter shade of brown!!  This is a very easy patchwork pattern that I would recommend if you are looking for a fun and easy pattern  to make your next quilt!!!

Sewed all the strips together.  These are for the dark brown blocks.  Going to make alternate blocks with a light brown print.  I was going to make a one-block and one-color scheme quilt but I don't think I have enough of the dark brown print.  After sewing all the strips together the next thing to do is to iron then cutting them into 21/2" strips.
