Bloggers Quilt Festival in red and white
I was hoping to show my daughter's new quilt in this fall's Blogger's Quilt Festival. (Thank you for organising this Amy!) The quilt was supposed to be done by the end of October, then by the end of this week...Well, I'm still stitching away at that one, so I'll share the quilt I made for my parents a few years ago.
The quilt started with the nine patches in the center. They are the first blocks I pieced - ever. This is where I learned that a small variation from a 1/4 inch seam results in a block that is not the size you expected. I wasn't sure how to fit these into any pattern I had since they weren't a convenient 6 inches square, so I tucked them away in a box for 3 or 4 years.
