  1. Making My First Quilt

    by , 02-18-2016 at 05:19 PM
    Hello everyone! I'm new to quilting and wanted to share my very first project with you. I spend one week with Judy Niemeyer learning how to quilt.

    Let me know what you think and what a good project would be for my second quilt!

    I'd love to hear your experiences with template paper piecing. Like I said, I've done it only this one time and there were so many rules and techniques I tried to memorize. Let me know if you have any tips to share! Thanks and I'm excited ...

    My version of this block is made with 2.5” scrap squares and white strips. The finished block is 10.5” unfinished.

    1. A graph paper pattern to use for placement
    2. Sew a 2.5” scrap square and 2.5” white square together
    3. Sew a 2.5” x 4.5” white strip “log” to #2
    4. Sew a 2.5”

    I’m including a picture of the placement on a portion of my quilt to help you identify the block in my quilt.

    The last picture is the finished quilt.

    I hope this explanation gets your creative juices flowing. I love it when I have inspired others to make their own creations.

    Well its been a long month waiting for the next step in the Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt. I hope to wake up in the morning to a most anticipated email for the 2nd step.

    I have 315 half square triangles all sewn and trimmed to 2 1/2 inches. I am doing my background fabric in black. My original plan was to make a queen size until I saw how many HST I would need. lol

    Im anxious to see what it is I am making.

    I'll post a picture when I get home tonight.
