The finished quilt...

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

I am just going to quilt along the ditch lines.  Not too much quilting.  Just some simple clean quilt lines on the border as well.

Basting the quilt with plenty of safety pins!  I used a fibre and cotton mix batting for this quilt.

I added a border with the same printed fabric as the heart of the block.

Added a blue fabric for the frame.  I used the same blue fabric as the middle block.
  The blue brings out the other colors.  Made the quilt bright and colourful!!

Cutting and sorting out the fabric.  This process usually take quite some time.  I like to have all the pieces cut and ready for  piecing.  First, I have to decide the number of blocks needed.  Then the number of triangles and squares to cut.

The fun part is piecing all the fabrics together!  The vision of the 'finished' patchwork is only in the mind at this moment!!

King's Crown

I am using the pattern called King's Crown to make a baby quilt.  I think it is quite appropriate as it will be the first grandchild for both the families.  It will be a 3 X 6 blocks quilt.  I intend to make it as colourful as I can.  The main fabric will be the printed cartoon print.  The rest of the fabric will be the fat quarters that are in my stash.
