Well, I’ve done it again. I took a break before I basted Melisa’s Quilt and stumbled upon a you tube video, Laura Ann Cola was showing how to make a woven quilt. The quilt uses nine fat quarters and one yard of a solid background. I did have to add the border fabric and the backing. The pieces were 10″ long and different widths. I could cut that out of the Japanese fabric pieces. It is all straight sewing. No matching seams.
It is such a unusual quilt and I really liked it. I knew that if I didn’t make it now, I would never make it, so I wrote down the instructions and started cutting. Then, I started sewing, It was so easy and fast. I had the middle pieced in an afternoon. I sewed the triple border today. Now, I have another quilt in the “ready to quilt” pile.
This quilt would be very nice with thirties fabric, or Christmas fabric, or solids, It would be nice with stripes, although the pieces would have to be fussy cut.
It would be perfect for a Guild sit and sew day. Most could go home with a finished quilt top.
I still have to baste Melissa’s quilt. Oh, well, maybe tomorrow.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
