Twirl Magic and a Sewing Saturday


Today I get to show off our newest quilt.  This quilt looks beautifu,l but it almost killed me making it.  I discovered all the ways to not do half square triangles.  I used a method to create the blocks by sewing 2 7 inch squares all the way around. Then you cut diagonally on the bias.  I did not ever understand the issue with bias tell I decided to sew 2 bias cut peices back together again.  Any way I think the quilt ended up wonderful and it is on our Etys store at https://www.etsy.com/listing/109021822/baby-girl-patchwork-quilt-out-of-twirl  HST Quilt



All in all I think it turned out fantastic.


This last Saturday Tanya and I went to the SLMQG sewing Saturday.  This is the 4th activity I have gone to with the guild and I enjoyed it a lot.  The goal for the day was to work on charity quilts.  Here is a few pictures I took.






This last picture is what Tanya and I worked on, the fabric was donated from  http://www.rileyblakedesigns.com/  to go to the http://phoenixquilts.blogspot.com/ Tanya and I will be making 3 lap size quilts for them you will see more on this later.

The quilt looks great! Working with bias cut fabrics is a pain in the butt! The quilts from the guild even look good =D

Hi visiting from Freemotion by the River - that HST quilt looks adorable, love the bright and cheery colours. The charity quilts are looking great too.

Hi there! LOVE the HST quilt. Yeah - I'm not super big on the sew-around-all-4-sides method. I think the key of that one is to use mega-gobs of starch, and I'd rather just use different methods. Yours turned out so attractive. The binding's perfect for it, too.

Another beautiful quilt and yes....sewing on the bias means don't stretch. What a neat quilt you and Tanya are working on for the charity quilts! What beautiful blocks! I can't wait to see it when you put them all together! Thanks for sharing.
