    Fantastic Quilting Weekend

    This weekend has been spent with a young friend Heidi who is a new quilter. We have spent two days sitting on our shack verandah enjoying a gorgeous summers day and sewing like crazy. It was such a joy to watch Heidi start on this wonderful quilting journey and she had so much fun going through my batik scraps to foundation piece her little quilt. Today before she headed back home, she had also foundation pieced 36 blocks (4" square) for her 2nd quilt. I think she is fast becoming hooked

    What a wonderful time you must have had, Lynnie! It's so nice of you to help a young quilter get started. And both your quilts are lovely too!

    Did you use a pattern for yours, or is that an original "Lynnie"? I love it.

    Oh I can tell you had a lot of fun. Love the design on your quilt. Heidi sure accomplished a lot for being a beginner.
    Cold and snowy here so it was nice to see you enjoying your sunny weather. Peggy

    Isn't it wonder to have such a young person to teach quilting to! It looks so warm and pretty there, thank you!

    What a wonderful way to spend a weekend. She will remember this for the rest of her life. Sewing is a life skill that is too often not taught anymore and yet it is something that we can enjoy every day.

    The pattern is from the 'Quiltmakers 100 Blocks, Vol 4' magazine and is the Quatrefoil (Block 330) block. I have done a smaller one in red, white and black and thought I would try out the full size one in 2 colours. There are more rows to be added but it looks good so far.

    I should add that Heidi had never used a sewing machine until she started making her blocks. Following the lines on the foundation pieced blocks gave her the confidence to start and continue and I think is why she has enjoyed it so much. But I got her to make a 9 patch (with no lines to follow) - just using the 1/4 guide on the sewing machine and she managed fine, even unpicking one row because the seams didn't match.
