I have been longingly following bloggers that have the most wonderful quilting expertise and also access to the most fantastic fabrics and I dream of making quilts like this. But first I need to start with the basics and as I showed you back here I have taken the leap and bought some fabric. I have also been reading books from the library to learn any tricks and must do's.
I have seen many Quilt-A-Longs that had great squares each week, but as a complete beginner I was worried about joining, incase the squares or tutorials were too tricky for a novice. Until before Christmas, when I saw Sew Happy Geeks QAL, what drew me in was Jenna's statement that a beginner could join up as things would be taken slowly and would build up to more difficult squares.
So over the last week I have cut the fabric and followed Jenna's very clear and precise tutorials and produced these.
Friendship Star block
and QST Pinwheel block
I still have one more block to complete until I'm up to date , but it looks a bit tricky and will have to be done when I have silence and uninterrupted time (when the boys are at school and Rose is having a nap).
Also thank you to Jenna at Sew Happy Geek for the most wonderful clear and free tutorials any mistakes are my own and have nothing to do with her!!!!
Very Berry Handmade. The prizes would make any fabric lover do a jig!!! (I did)
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend, I'm off to have a celebratory glass of wine and I leave you with one last picture of them all together.
