I actually quilted this one myself, with the feed dogs down and free motion foot on. I may have done a bit too much, but I am happy with the end result. The backing is a cute all over print that can disquise my amature free motion work! – Now all we need is the pup.
OK – we are currently pet-less if that is a word, and I am thinking that it is time to get a puppy for our house. The kids are grown and moving out, and I need some replacement for that missing time and attention given to the kids!! So, I found this cute stack of fabrics with a puppy print and decided to make a tumbling blocks quilt – puppy sized.
This was my first attempt at a tumbling block quilt, and I think that the project would have been better with some higher contrast fabrics, or better planning in placement. The hardest part? Y-Seams. If you know of a pattern without using the Y-seam, let me know!
The best part was seeing the seams aligned after sewing down one side, then pivoting 1/4 inch before the corner, then sewing down the other side. – all this piece needs is a little press with the iron.
