Yesterday I had one of those great Saturdays when you’ve got no errands to run & nothing on the schedule which I haven’t had in quite awhile. The weather was gray and drizzly (San Francisco summer) so it seemed like a good day to try out my learn to quilt kit. It had all the supplies (less the cutting board & ruler) to make an Ohio Square block.
Here’s my first pieces quarters. I can’t say this is fabric I would have picked myself but for practicing it was fine, I really had to be careful to get straight cuts because the gingham would really show if I was very crooked.
Here’s the finished block all sewing together. I had a bit of trouble with the binding because the directions weren’t exactly clear but all and all I’m happy with the final result. Now I’m practicing hand quilting on it & then I move on to the doll quilt I bought the Mode quilt kit for.
