Somewhere, somehow I decided that I needed to start quilting. My sister Melissa is doing some quilting applique, so she has also inspired me to start quilting.
I found a free pattern called "Blue Winter" on the internet (Claudia's Quilt Shoppe) and it was labelled for "absolute beginners" so I decided to give it a try.
These are the fabrics that I purchased at Calgary's "Freckles Quilt Shop":
The fabrics for the Rail Fence Blocks:
Fabric for the Checkered Blocks:
Fabric for the Backing:
Close-up of Checker Block #1
Close-up of one fabrics for the Rail Fence Block & Border & Binding
Close-up for second fabric for Rail Fence Blocks
Close-up for third fabric for Rail Fence Blocks
Close-up for fourth fabric for Rail Fence Blocks
I finished the quilt top this week.
I layered the backing, batting & quilt top on the kitchen floor then pin-basted it together.
