i was very excited to discover it for two reasons: 1. it will help me accomplish more of the quilts i hope to make in my lifetime (the list is scary and lengthy!) and 2. it's a great way to try out new quilt techniques on a smaller scale.
i have two to share today.
16" x 18"
the first is a string X block. there is a tutorial here.
(hey, it's been awhile since i made a pink quilt!)
there is a gorgeous X quilt here.
what i learned:
-spray starch helps a ton.
-i'm not going to make one of these quilts on a larger scale, as it took me 4 tries to stipple this one. (oh, the seams!)
-my spiderweb quilt is going to be a huge pain in the hinder to quilt.
14" x 17"
this is a little quilt i made for the purpose of trying out a new-to-me quilting technique. (i love the color scheme of this one. and i used scraps!)
the inspiration for the quilting is here. AMAZING, wouldn't you say?
i'd like to try this technique on my square dance quilt. but then again, i'd like to finish the square dance quilt sometime this year, so i'm torn. :)
today is day 22 of the quilt along. i have 37 nine patches complete, for those of you who are curious.
happy monday to you!
