First we take the big pieces…

There is no logic behind quilting. I think there must have been at one time. Take the still useful pieces of old clothes and sew them into blankets for the winter ahead.

Now, we take pristine yards of fabric and chop them into strips then squares and triangles.

Then we sew them together. Into larger and larger pieces, until we have a piece big enough to cover a mattress of your choosing.

This is the pieced top of my daughter’s quilt.

Now I just have to figure out  how to quilt it. The easiest way would be to outline the blocks and stitch in the ditch.

But I never do things the easy way:D.

I’ll post a photo of when I’m done quilting. Maybe around Christmas.

Until next time.

    Have you ever heard of Gwen Marston’s book, liberated quilt making? She is my kind of quilter. You can probably find her book at the library.
