SIX Quilts for Christmas

What are you most proud of? WOW - 6 quilts in 4-1/2 months!! I learned several things. The quilt pattern is called 'Tossed Nine Patch' from 'Quilt in a Day'. And because you put 9 whole blocks together and then cut them up into 4 blocks - you don't know the alignment of the square once it is pieced together as a quilt - SOOO I did my MACHINE EMBROIDERY after the top was pieced together. What I learned there was -to spray starch the block (3x) you are about to ME onto. (In some quilts I placed the design where each could be viewed from a different angle, but as I progressed along, I felt 'one-way' looked best.) I also LEARNED how to completely finish the Binding by Machine! (It was a 'time' factor :-) ) And I am VERY Proud of the results - and don't think I will EVER hand finish a binding by hand again!! :-) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have FUN with your projects!

You Can Make This

SandiePink made SIX Quilts for Christmas with:

  • This is the size that I call a 'Lifetime Quilt'. (50x70) It is my Favorite size to make
  • and I personally use this size all the time
  • throughout the year. The idea of the 'Lifetime Quilt' came to me many years ago when I got a phone call - but 13 years before that. . . .
