|The box of Blocks.|
|A ziplock bag containing one block ready to sew.|
|The block when it is done – minus the mistake!|
At the weekend I managed to get Eldest’s quilt cut out. Now if you read lots of books about quilting and blogs there are two schools of thought about this. One – cut the blocks one at a time and sew as you go. Two – cut all the material for all the blocks out and then sew them.
I decided that I would get all the cutting out of the way to start with and put all the material for one block in ziplock bags. So I know that one bag equals one block and I will sew them like that. I also thought it would make it easier.
Attached is a picture of all the bags ready and waiting and one of just one bag. Also there is a picture of the block. Spot the deliberate mistake! On the lower half I have managed to sew the pale blue stripe the wrong way round! Sew I will have to redo those, but I just wanted to see if the colours worked together and they do, I think.
This, when done, will make a twin/single bed quilt and hopefully I will get it quilted with a wave like design, to represent swimming, as Eldest is now Captain of our swimming club!
He likes the design and the colours so we are on to a winner hopefully.
Happy Quilting Thursday
