A lil’ quilt.

I sewed up a little sample for my class at Sew Modern. A beginner’s how to quilt class that includes some fun improv. piecing of log cabins. Just a little 30″ square quilt with four big blocks that sew up quickly.

I’m pretty sure the class is almost full but I’ll list it more in the future too.

This little center is my favorite part of the quilt. I love these gray stripes.  I’m in a stripes place these days.

Jacquie comes and speaks to the LAMQG tonight! AND we have the Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons Solids Challenge reveal. I can’t wait to see what everyone made! Not to mention that 70 people have RSVPed for the meeting. It’s gonna be a big one!

    Love the look of those parallel lines – do you go up and down on them? Do you do ever 3rd or 4th line first, then fill in the spaces, or do you start in the middle and work outwards?
    Do you slow down your machine? I tend to go quite fast with my walking foot on straight lines, and end up with puuuuuuckers! Would be nice to get rid of those :)

    Very nice! About how long did it take you to make a quilt this size?
    Your stitches look great, by the way!

    too cute! I’m really quite taken with this one – love the colors, that gray and white stripe, your improv blocks and the quilting!

    I’m sure tonight’s meeting will be great – wish I was there!

    Did you intend to put the word LOVE in there? Does anyone else see it? Red L, circle O, red V tipped onto its side, lower-case E. If this is an accident of your improv piecing, I think it shows you have a lovely soul! True if it was intentional, too!

    This is really lovely! Soooo cute!
