Wonderful! Marvelous quilting! I love it, can you tell!-lol
Thank you for explaining to all of us. It's so good when Cuties share their know-how or experiments with different techniques. Give your grand daughter a birthday wish from us, I'm sure she loved this quilt. She must be about my grand daughter Nora's age.
Very nice work-Toogie

Beautiful quilt. I think you did a wonderful job. All it takes is the making of one quilt to be considered a quilter so I think you qualify. My twin sister and I wanted to keep the quilting legacy going in our family. We come from a long line of quilters. My sister checked the American guidelines and discovered that it has to be passed down thru each family line. Even though my aunt quilted, it didn't count for us. It had to pass down through my dad! He let us sweet talk him into making a quilt so the legacy continues thru 5 generations! Now to teach one of my children.

Thank you for sharing your story, I never knew that. Do you have to register your quilt? Both my son and daughter sew and my oldest grand daughter sews as well.

Thanks so much, Barb for the instructions...one more question about the piping...what do you do with the piping cord that would be sewn into the seam allowances?

1 comment
Barbaric by Barbaric 05 Apr 2018

I sew the piping into the seam allowance because it is so soft and sits flat once I sew over it. I will post a Christmas table runner, same technique but with stippling. Make sure you allow extra fabric on all sides of your design, so you are not covering your design when you place your sashing on the blocks.

step 1: photo 1: I make my piping and I use a thin cotton cord which I separate. Using my zipper foot I stitch close to the fold of the material be careful not to catch the cotton cord.

step 2: photo 2: I then stitch the piping to the sashing.

step 3: photo 3: iron it in place.

step 4: photo 4: I embroider my design to my iron on wadding. after I am finish I trim the block to the size I need.

step 5: photo 5: I place my backing under my block and quilt it (either straight sewing or stippling. I then trim the backing and leave half an inch on all sides.

step 6: photo 6: Then place the backing right sides together and stitch being careful not to sew your main block or wadding during this process. Carefully iron open the seam some people cut back this seam.

Step 7: photo 7: I place the sashing over the main blocks and ditch stitch between the piping and the sashing.

Photo 8: is the back of the quilt

Great explanation. I wondered how the back was put together. Do you stitch horizontal stripes or vertical stripes? I love the piping. Perfect finish.

Barbaric by Barbaric 05 Apr 2018

I stitch horizontal stripes first.

Well, you certainly are a quilter...It looks like piping between the sashing and the blocks...is it? Also, would love to see the back...I am always looking for new quilt as you go blocks and joining methods.
