Iíve been learning to quilt, but donít like quilting on small squares. No Challenge I guess. I joined a local charity group and have been sewing for them. There are no quilt police here, and they appreciate anything you can do. Iíve been doing quilts for them and it is more of a challenge than scraps, and I try harder to do a better job. It is a little more of a challenge, and they can be useful. I guess it is the feeling of accomplishment. I actually pieced the first 3, and 4th and 5th were panels they gave me and I did a simple grid type of quilting with my walking foot. The last one was a leftover piece of fabric from years ago. I just put on borders and did a grid. Good practice. I started this about mid February, and worked straight through til I got them all done.
This was a chevron I got from my youngest sister. I used a charm pack and a few strips from a matching jelly roll for the borders.
I found these strips and the backing and border and binding in the stash donated to me by some members of he charity. Made a cute small quilt. Just did stippling all over.
This is a small quilt for a preemie. Made from 2 fat quarters and some white that we all seem to have on hand.
This one is one of the panels they provide. I used the pink border you can see, and just used my walking foot to sew around the pink line, then used the seam guide to stitch an inch away for there for the whole quilt.
This was the other panel. As you can see I did another grid. I used masking tape to mark the first diagonal line each way, then again used the walking foot and seam guide to finish. Sure is an easy way to keep your lines straight.
This is a piece of fabric I have had for years. Couldn't decide on how to cut it, so just bordered it with some of the colors and again did a square grid with the walking foot. Sure is an easy way to quilt.
I had a lot of fun doing these. It is for a good cause and is a great way to practice. I've got tons more donated stash to ďPracticeĒ some more. Thanks for looking.
