New Quilt

I love every process of making quilts. From choosing the fabrics:

To sewing them together into strips:

To pressing and sewing the strips into something more substantial:

And ending up with the finished quilt top:

Well, I'm almost finished. I still need to sew on the border but that shouldn't take more than a few minutes. And maybe the use of the word love is a bit excessive when it comes to pressing the seams. Ironing isn't one of my favourite past times, but as ironing goes, pressing seams is the best kind.

Now I'm not too confident on the actual quilting part, so I'm gonna spend the rest of the day practicing. I would absolutely love to hand quilt all of my quilts but it would take too long for it to be profitable. I'll save hand quilting for gifts and special occasions! Anyway it's back to the sewing machine to finish off this border.


  1. Hi Nerys,

    Great quilt, love the bright colours. You seem to be whipping through them, what's that, three this year already? Looking forward to seeing some pics when it/they are finished :-)

    Still working on mine, about 2/3rds way through section 2, only 7 to go....


  2. Thanks Katie,

    I'm really liking this one actually. Think I've gotten the hang of quilting too. You'll need to share the quilt with us when you finish. Keep sewing! x


Thanks for reading! Looking forward to your comment.
