Quilt Part Deux


I made great progress on the quilt this weekend. I sewed all the squares together! I now need to buy some batting, a large piece of fabric for the back of the quilt, and cut the edging. I am sure this the improper "quilting lingo," but oh well. (Also, I understand that this picture looks remarkably like the first post about the quilt- but take my word, lots of stitches have taken place since then. Lots of stitches . . .)

Looks great--and I love the color pallette! Are you planning to "tie" this quilt? (After it's sewn together you can "tie" it by sewing a stitch or tying yarn through each square, or you can "quilt" it by sewing lines or patterns through all three layers.) The reason I ask is, if you tie it, my advice is to buy thinner batting to make it easier on your fingers! (I learned this the hard way.)

It looks great so far. I have always been wanting to do a quilt. Are you teaching yourself? I thought about taking a quilting class at JoAnn Fabrics but I havent decided.

I am teaching myself- I bought an overpriced starter kit- which came with instructions, a pattern, and all the fabric you see. But I think that a class might have been a good idea . . .

I'm really into young adult books, actually! I love re-reading the old Beverly Cleary and Paula Danziger books. You should totally read (if you haven't already) "Everything I Needed to Know About Being a Girl I Learned from Judy Blume" by Jennifer O'Connell. It's a collection of essays from women about their favorite teen books and it brought back so many memories!

As for the quilt, I've always thought that tying was easier but quilting looked a little nicer. I've tied all of my quilts, so I don't have a lot of advice on how to quilt! Good luck!
