Pat's Knitting and Quilting
November 10, 2010
The quilting switch has been turned on and the knitting switch is off and I'm having a blast. There are so many amazing quilt blogs out there - kind of like knitting blogs before Ravelry.
Here is what my sewing table looks like right now...
I have 3 quilts in line for machine quilting and 2 more in progress, so will take pictures of all of them as they are completed.
My plan is to make donation quilts for children - which frees up my inner spirit and helps me let go of perfectionism - I can take chances with design/color and know that a child will love to wrap up in these fun quilts no matter what. There are 3 charity organizations that I'm excited about - has anyone had any experience with these groups? If so, I'd love to hear about it - I just want to be sure that my quilts really get to a child.
Here's a tiny quilt that I just finished using these 4 patches made over a year ago. Sorry about the photos - it's raining, so these were taken with inside with poor lighting- better to get them up than keep waiting for sunshine!
Here is the back made with leftover squares - I actually like the back as much as the front!
Pattern: just scrappy 6" 9 patch squares sewn together
Some close ups of fabric/quilting
I may even try free motion quilting on one of these next few quilts - maybe I'll learn a new skill!
