2 ½” was the theme for our May meeting and I demonstrated several blocks made from 2 ½” strips (original post here)
This block was one of the most popular as it comes with a twist (tutorial coming up).
In June we talked about crazy quilts and I did a step by step demonstration. Grandson’s pillow was made with this theme in mind.
It’s as crazy as it gets.
I layered batting and backing and started adding scraps in all 4 corners and the middle, stitch-and-flip-quilt-as-you-go style.
As the 5 clusters of scraps melted together, pieces were topstitched to cover all raw edges.
I wanted to tie everything together with red tacks, but I could not get them right.
After several failed attempts, I gave up on tacking and couched red yarn in vertical lines instead.
