Look ma no pins.....

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! 
I did! Plus I actually got to sew! I bought some 30's style fabric last weekend, and decided to make a patchwork quilt! I had an idea in mind using all these 2.5x5 colorful pieces and white fabric. I do NOT think of myself as a "quilter" I'm still learning - I have a LOT to learn! But I try!

I did two techniques I've never tried before, first I did NOT use pins. Which made sewing go quickly, but it may not be perfect - oh well!
Second technique was NOT to stop sewing - I would take two pieces, sew them together, take two more, etc.  I just kept doing this and sewing went by quickly, and made this garland look below! I just thought they look cool!
Sewing is sometimes difficult because Mickey is so rotten!!! He gets pouty if I don't pay attention to him!

Tada! This is the almost finished quilt!

Half way finished! 

I love the look of the colors against the white! I hope to finish the top tonight!
Pin It
