I was working on my second wedding quilt on Sunday.
I had all the squares made and it was time to put the top together.
I had a pattern.
First I had so much help I couldn't see and sew at the same time.
Just look at how close those adorable toes were to the needle!
She finally settled down and I was able to put some of the top together.
Have you ever started sewing assuming you knew how to put something together?
I was doing this and could NOT figure out why my top was not coming out like the pattern!!
Then I looked closer and realized what I was doing wrong.
I ended up having to rip out 3 rows and re-sew some ends and rows and ACK,
it was NOT a great sewing night!
I don't happen to have a photo of the top so far but will take one soon.
You can see the blocks here.
A 4 patch sashed in white, and a 16 patch using blues and greens.
The blocks alternate and are set on point.
I am not sure I am going to do the borders as in the pattern but
I am hoping to get the center part of the top finished before I leave for my quilting retreat on Friday.
I am going with some of the others from the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild
for a quilt retreat this weekend.
I will be there from Fri-Sun, meals provided.
Sounds like a great weekend which should also be very productive!
I will be back later to share more.
