I have machined sewn my very first double bed size quilt! I bought this fabric in 2001 when I decided to take early retirement. So to keep me from being bored I decided to make a quilt.
I was going to sew it by hand, but after a try at a few blocks I gave up. Since January this year I have been going to a quilting workshop each week and this is my efforts. It is not as blue as the photo looks. The pattern is star and railway fence blocks. I had several goes at the star blocks which are made up of 'flying geese' and I found it really difficult not to sew the blocks losing the points of the star shape!
I got better as I sewed and also my quarter inch seams with practice were more accurate.
But here is my finished effort, some of the top stitching sewing is a little wobbly but I am very pleased with it.
I am more confident to sew another quilt and have the fabric ready to go.
So watch this space!!
Happy stitching all
