Loving my finishes for 2017! I seem to be starting with some simple finishes to get me going.
On December 29, 2016 I loaded my new Handi Quilter Pro-Stitcher and promptly loaded and quilted this lovely baby quilt. I used the Dragonflies design by Sweet Dreams Quilt Studio, a free design from Handi Quilter.
In the fall I was invited to do some teaching at a Craft and Sew group at a local church. We decided that a simple rail fence with border and binding would be a good place to start.
We looked for ideas on Pinterest and chose a 5 strip rail fence pattern. I worked out the math and wrote basic instructions for the group members. We learned how to cut accurate strips, sew 1/4" seams and press properly.
At this past week's meeting, we learned how to cut and sew perfect borders! I've got a few more of these quilts in the works.
