My great Grandmothers sewing basket.
Beautiful, isn't it?
But what could it be containing in it's sunny yellow interior?
Why, the last project on my list ofcourse!!
My wedding ring quilt.
I have been working on it for a few years already
First I found the pattern online.(For free:))
then I cut out the pieces.
Piece A-1.744 piece B.R-436 piece B.L-436 piece D-99 piece C-218 piece E-436
3.369p pieces total.
it took awhile to cut out...
The fabric that I used was mostly from scraps that my Grandma gave to me a few years ago.
Some very bright and funky fabrics to say the least!
Then the next part was to sew pieces A-B.R-B.L together into
( I call them "half moons" but they could also be crescents.)
until I had 436
Now, the part that I am currently doing.
sewing piece C to the "half moons"
until I have 218
Then sewing piece E onto the "half moons"
Then sewing it together till it make an ellipse.
The next part would now be to sew the ellipses onto piece D
After making these, it would be time to start sewing the top together like so~
When I am done with this quilt I'm thinking that I will be very adapt with sewing curved lines.
did I mention that I am sewing this all buy hand?
since this project is more of a
" Do while sitting in the evenings watching TV"
less of a
"sit and sew by hand in the middle of the day" Project.
this means I can START NEW projects!!!
Mostly revolving around the American Civil War.
I am being hopeful that we will be able to go to at least one reenactment this year
(most likely false hope, but hope none the less..)
I hope this inspires you to start a quilt project of you're own!!!
