I’m still working on finishing my board game quilt pattern. This was a quilt I had in Quilter’s Newsletter magazine a few years ago that I forgot.
Since it has been some time since I wrote the pattern, I wanted to double-check things, which means … I’ll make the blocks several more times. It’s always fun to use my stash of tie-dye when I have an island tie-dye ambassador.
The table runner consists of two blocks of quilting that are pretty easy to make. If you have an accuquilt cutter, you won’t need time to cut out the blocks.
One of the blocks is very popular and you have probably seen it in many quilts. This shows you how the pieces fit together in the block.
I seem to have a lot of teal batik in my stash and it seems almost every time I want to do a sample block … it’s teal.
When it came to the binding, I didn’t have enough of the tie-dye I used in the blocks, but I had a piece that went together pretty well. It was a leftover piece that wasn’t very long, and I think I had to cut seven 2½ inch strips and sew them together. I wrapped it around the edge of the table runner before attaching it to make sure I had enough fabric. I like to improvise while quilting.
Free motion quilting
My quilting is just a simple meander movement. It’s still my favorite way to finish a quilt. Fancy patterns and feathers are beautiful and I love to do them every now and then, but most of the time when I get the point of quilting … I just want to finish my quilting project.
I am again using my Singer 15-91 sewing machine, made in 1951, the same year I was born. I bought this sewing machine from a farm auction on my fortieth birthday. It was in perfect condition and I was told the woman had been using it all the time before she died.
I always remember the date my daughter threw a surprise birthday party for me. I was at the auction and didn’t want to leave until I bought the sewing machine. When I got home everyone was there and it was a wonderful surprise. It’s so nice to have memories like this!
I love this little vase that I found at Goodwill. It’s made to be on your side. Are you looking for a thick quarter bundle of fabric for your quilting projects? Check this out!
