STARTING TO SEW MY FIRST EQ7 DESIGN

 

Tiny 9 patch in 9 patch.

After taking a beginners course from EQ7 - Electric Quilt Company- I am starting to sew this design.  The pieces are tiny.  Each 9 patch measures 1 1/2" finished.  So cute.  I will post updates as I sew the pieces together. 
 
I have finally started a quilt blog!  That one can come off my bucket list!
 
 
Here is the link to take the course I took:  
I learned a lot.

  1. That quilt pattern looks so detailed! I have never quilted (I'm a knitter!) but my mom has quilted as for back as I can remember. My favourite part is the stitching done after all the pieces are together. I'm sure there's an actual name for it. My mom did hers by hand and there would be lots of loops and things to trace with your finger while you're watching a movie or reading a book. Beats a boring store-bought comforter anyday! I can appreciate the amount of work too - sometimes my mom would work on a quilt for months and months.

    When I was little, my mom had a quilt on her bed that looked (to me) like a bunch of tiny intersections, so I pretended it was a town and ran my matchbox cars on it. :)

    Anyway, I'm so glad you started a blog, and look forward to reading about your quilting adventures!

    1. Thanks, Erin. The stitching (by machine or by hand) that forms those lines bringing the 3 layers together is called "QUILTING." The quilt is made by joining the TOP, the BATTING and the BACKING with stitching throughout. I have done 2 large quilts by hand. Hundreds of hours go into it, but it's fun. I think people who create things by hand really appreciate the time and love that others put into it. Thanks for following. Cindy
