Bring your cup of tea over and take a seat. 😉
When it comes to quilts, I am always like a preschooler peeking through a 1st grader’s classroom. What they are learning seems so cool, so hard and I want to grow up to be in that class.
Just like that, Quilting seems like the big leagues.
I was so happy when I received Weekend Quilting. Jemima, my big sister showed me the ropes.
By the way, Are you older than me Jemima? 😉
The very first lesson I learned at a little quilt shop near my house 20 years ago was a nine patch. That’s when I first learned the basics.
My quilt teacher taught me how to make a pincushion using hand stitched nine patches. So for me, nine patches are for a pincushion.
Jemima tought me I can make a big cushion, mini quilt and other huge proejcts!
To show her that I am a smart student, I wanted to add some thread drawing on my white canvas.
I took the motifs from her Blooms Mini Quilt. I think this design can be used on any projects by resizing or just changing the little things..
And ta-da! I love how Nine patch and Bloom mini quilt look together in one project.
Do you think I can be a second grader now? 😉 I am very confident because I have her book!
“Can I have it now?”
Claire was patiently waiting for mama to take pictures and asked me with big smile.
She loves her new pillow and her happy face makes me want to flip through the book again and has got me thinking about what’s next?
Go grab your copy of Weekend Quilting and sew something on your free weekend.
