Block one of my nine block sampler is complete - Ohio Star.
This one has been hand stitched and I am not the world's best hand sewer but nevertheless it has turned out quite well for a beginner. Mid way through this I started to dislike the colours - until I placed the centre fabric then it all looked so much better.
|I can already see one error that I need to fix. The remaining quilt will be machined sewed so it should become easier and quicker.|
|This is such pretty fabric|
For those wanting to know what we have learnt in the quilting class: firstly we learnt to draft our own patterns (on large graph paper). From this we cut out the shapes to use to draw around on the fabric.
|Once I have drawn around the shape, I use my 1/4 inch ruler to draw an outline. This is the line I cut.|
|Pencil lines on the fabric|
|Building the pattern.|
