I designed my first table top quilt to show the things I love, my photographer husband, Ken, family, reading books, Maui, scrapbooking and paper crafts, camping, quilting and coffee. I tried applique as well as fabric painting (the letter m in family and the design in the coffee cup). It was also my first time using freezer paper ironed to fabric, drawing the design on the freezer paper and cutting it out. I loved how the freezer paper helped with some of the more fussy designs.
Once my first was done, I thought I would try to make one that is a adaptation of my blog icon.
I've wanted to try the log cabin style block. I miscalculated the strips needed (the tut I was following made 14 1/2" blocks and I tried to recalculate.. after I sewed it all together, it was too small. I'm definitely still a Wantobe). I just added two additional white and red strips, so it's not quite a log cabin block.
I haven't learned free motion quilting yet, so I stitched in the ditch. I hope to learn free motion quilting, so I can do some fancy work in the blue of the bunny quilt. I hope you enjoyed my attempts at mini quilts. Be sure to check out all the other blogs for today. The list is in my previous post.
Thanks for stopping by.
