All finished…… Don’t know if I would eat cookies off them. Wouldn’t these be cute for a little girl’s room. Playing with her dolls. Tea Time. Too cute!! 😀
As you probably guessed, I am loving quilting. I like looking at all the designs in books and on the net. Then I take what I like and go off on my own and make up my own creations. And I am learning sooo much. Everyday is something new.
BUT… some parts of quilting gives me pause. Like sticking the bent quilter’s pins in the quilt sandwich.
Let me ask you quilters a question…….. How do you avoid the pin holes?
I carefully insert the pins but I feel like I am damaging the fabric. I see holes. BIG holes. Ugh!! Other than use my regular sewing pins, which would scratch up my hands and arms, I don’t know how to prevent the holes.
For this set, I quilted in one fourth inch columns. I didn’t use any aids. Just eyeballed it. Some of the lines are uneven but it looks ok to me. Looks GREAT to me. As a new quilter.
Adding the binding was kind of tricky. I pieced the fabrics together and when I pinned it, I had to make sure the seams weren’t near a corner. That is, after I made the mistake of doing so. Lesson learned!!
The daisy fabric was a Fat Quarter. One Fat Quarter. Can you believe I managed to get four mug rugs and the binding from that one 18″ by 22″ piece? Careful measuring and careful cutting.
Well… that does it for now. You will have to come back to see what else I am working on.
