5 lovely designs: a new project.

1.27.2010

Lately I've been coming across a lot of quilt patterns that I really want to try.  Granted, I've never sewn a quilt in my life, but why not start now?  I came across this cathedral window quilt tutorial last week and loved the design so much I just had to try it.  Bonus that it doesn't require quilting the entire thing at the end, because I don't know how to make the pretty patterns that free form quilters make on their quilts.  Not so much of a bonus-- it took me a good four hours to make these four blocks and put them together (after a practice run that definitely did not deserve a place in this post).  

Do I have the patience to make an entire quilt?  I seriously doubt it.  But it would make for a pretty awesome pillowcase!  And can I tell you how obsessed I am with putting linen and gray corduroy together?  Another project using these fabrics is coming up soon!

  4. You did a great job! I have been tempted to try this block as well (even though I don't quilt and I am a total newbie!) I found this tutorial that did it slightly different and made them into a beautiful throw pillow. http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/04/charming-window-pillows.html#more
