I'm a bit nervous about turning up at my second ever quilting class (next week), and telling them I have started 3 quilts and a pillow already... but a square a month would just be too horribly, painfully slow!! I couldn't find any instructions for a wonky style squares quilt, so I just did this:
I started off with a central piece, then added on strips round the edge. (I cut uneven width strips from my fabric for the wonky effect.)I didn't measure anything, just made sure I added onto a perfectly straight edge each time:Making sure the outer edges are straight, and adding some more wonkiness:
Adding more wonky pieces, making a rough square each time:
I placed the square in progress over a completed square, just to check it is roughly the right size:I added the last frame, and then cut it down to a perfect square.
My 'temporary' quilting corner of the dining room... (dismal day outside)
I want to 'write' something on each quilt/pillow I make - here is the little rhyme I made up for my son Jack's pillow. I want to sew it into a strip made up of all the fabrics I used on the pillow front, and embed it across the back of the pillow case. (I found this 'Prym Aqua-Trickmarker' pen in Dunelm yesterday - like felt-tip, but disappears with water.)(I can't tell you how much I am enjoying this!)
