This quilt is made using a quilt-as-you-go technique. When the top is finished - so is the quilting! Just add the binding and label, and you are done. The DH and I will move to TN as soon as our home sells. Of course, we had to move a lot of our possessions into storage, including my sewing furniture and supplies!! Aarrgghh! So, I designed Tennessee Trotter so I could easily "quilt" it using my home sewing machine. No need to struggle trying to muscle a large quilt through the throat of my machine. The DH has already moved to TN, so he will use this quilt on the air bed in his tiny apartment. You can make this quilt any size you want - just add blocks and rows to meet your needs. Enjoy! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use of rotary cutter Ability to maintain a consistent 1/4" seam

Supplies Needed

  • Materials and tools are specified in the pattern

My mother taught me to sew when I was 8 - doll clothes by hand, then she moved me on to her old Singer. But it was Home Ec in Jr. High where I discovered that sewing was my "thing.". Throughout the years, I sewed clothing and made pillows and curtains and stuff. But quilting? Just the thought of cutting a beautiful piece of fabric into little pieces and sewing them together again seemed a little crazy to me. But when my first great-niece was born, I made my first quilt for her and was hooked! As a new quilter, I couldn't find designs that were easy enough, so, I got design software and started tinkering. Now that I am retired, my life is all about my DH and quilting. Thanks to Craftsy, I am able to share my designs and patterns with you. In addition to quilt designing, I stay busy in my guild, and have a quilting business: Quiltniques! My beloved longarm is named Margie and she works hard.
