Let me back up a bit. This is the back of the lap quilt I am making for hubby. It is two layers, one pieces of denim from old jeans and the second, cotton from his old shirts. Looks great from this side. Simple barn raising layout for best use of the pieces I had.
Just before writing this post, I thought I had better give it a try using the regular foot and engaging the feed dogs. One row done and it went my much easier at the block corners. I'll still have my work cut out for me manoeuvring the quilt around for the curves, but it will be worth it. Once the stitching is complete, then I have to clip the raw edges and wash and dry to do the 'rag quilt' thing to it. Final photos will be ready next week. (happy dance time soon).
Enough of that stress and on to the fun that was had at my local quilt guild meeting last week. I was thrilled that we had Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts as our guest. She brought oodles of quilts to show. Following are a sampling of some of her delights.
Sew Fresh Quilts. She has many for purchase patterns as well as some free ones available. Currently she is offering a free Christmas themed quilt along.
