One of my readers, Witchylin, has sent me some lovely photos of the quilt top she has made using my tutorial. She even included some of her progress pictures. She seems very organised 🙂 Notice the lovely orange leaf cushions on the chairs. She made those too!
The strip sets are ready to slice.
Next, cut them up into squares.
Put the squares together, draw across the diagonal, sew a seam either side of the line and then slice in two.
Press them open and join the blocks to make this quilt top 🙂
If you want to follow the full tutorial it is here.
I’m so pleased, Witchylin took the time to record the steps and allowed me to publish her photographs. It is nice to see that the tutorial works and even better to see the quilt in different colours.
We will all have to wait a little longer to see the final result when she finishes it. I’m really looking forward to that 🙂
Thanks again Witchylin!
Latest update: The Finale!
Witchylin has sent some photos of her finished strip quilt. It is fabulous!! I love those colours together 🙂
She decided to quilt “In the ditch” around the main square blocks and added a striking black backing and border to set it all off.
Isn’t it gorgeous!!!!
This was the quilt in the making. All the pinning is back breaking on a big quilt.
And another little treat….quillows. I must have a go at these myself one day! I’ve always admired this idea and Witchylin’s are lovely 🙂 Complete with her dog…..thinking “I might just have a lie down on that snuggly quillow”. Enjoy!
