Sew Sundays — January 28, 2018 A finish and a Bonus

Finished! Little girl quilt is done.

I am happy with the overall effect but do recognize now that I coulda/shoulda added either some simpler blocks or sashing to break up the repeated blocks.

This makes me realize that it’s time for me to start using patterns. So far I’ve pretty much only made one-block quilts, adding variation with borders and sashing only. But it’s time to go to the next level.

Question for you: are there some patterns which are better written than others? What should I look for when choosing a pattern?

This week I also finished a table runner for a friend. Her niece is having a stag and doe, so to help them out I whipped up this little beauty. My gf was thrilled!

Here is my PHD list and the progress since the start of the challenge:

  2. Autumn leaves quilt – cutting started
  3. Feathered star quilt – one block made Sep 2017 – no progress this period
  4. Delectable Mountains quilt – flimsy done except for borders – borders done, ready to sandwich, need to buy backing
  5. Little Girl quilt – DONE Jan 2018

I started quilting June 2016 after the announcement that my first grandchild would arrive February 2017. It was an instant and complete addiction...in only wish I had started earlier.

  1. Good Afternoon,
    Great job on the quilt! I think you are being way too critical – it think it looks lovely and a special little girl will absolutely adore it. Your ribbon on the border kind of resembles the table runner! Nice job on that as well – kind of a sneak in project around your UFOs. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Congratulations, Terry! I love your “Little girl quilt” – as it is. The border turned out great! And your table runner looks great! Fantastic quilting!
    You are well on your way to getting your PHD in 2018! 🙂
