I was able to finish a quilt top this week!!
My mom helped me make the four patches so it is
an EXTRA special quilt for sure!!!
It is one of the graduation quilts for the
seniors at my church.
My yearly QUILTY project is to give a quilt
to every graduating high school senior!
I will quilt it later...
so I left those edges AS IS.
The blocks were sewn together "on POINT"
Or - diagonally....
so I added a rectangle at the end of each row
and will trim the triangle points OFF later.
The reason, some of you know already,
Is that they will be BIAS edges when trimmed
and bias edges are VERY persnickety!
They like to bend and wobble.
Wobble and STRETCH!
I might be folding and unfolding this one
a few times before I get around to quilting it
I want to trim the edges later.
I might even quilt it BEFORE trimming.
That way I'll be SURE to keep the edge from getting distorted!
I COULD have added blue triangles all the way around.
But I didn't.
It was so much simpler (for me)
to cut rectangles and sew them on.
The fabric was not expensive.....
SO i'm not too worried about waste.
(the blue cotton is a VERY nice used cotton sheet!!)
I felt very THRIFTY as I pieced this one together!!!
I have so many other quilt projects to work on in my sewing room!
Not sure WHAT I'll pull out next.
What are YOU making this week???
