Something New - My First Mini Quilt

Tuesday, April 05, 2011


Following from my resolution to try something new, here is the my first mini quilt. Amongst something news are:
  • Diamond piecing -as I can't resist strip piecing at the best of times, I used diagonally cut strips.
  • Pearl cotton quilting -wonderfully quick and so brilliant.
  • Insert seams - I've lived in fear of them for years but really, they do get easier with practice. Perhaps I should have practised somewhere other than the final piece.
It was my first time in a doll quilt swap. I was blown away by the community around the whole swap. There were messages and encouragement galore. I'd certainly give it another try if I get a chance.

Also, now that I have had word that it has arrived, here is the finished quilt.
