my afternoon

A little something for a little someone. I just realized that I pressed the seams as though I was making a garment rather than a quilt. Eek! It's all done now of course. Hopefully it won't fall apart?

Beautiful fabrics, I am amazed by all quilt artists, since making one is a mammoth task and require so much patience. Congrats on completing this project, it looks wonderful!

I have a little someone (great-niece or nephew) due to make an appearance in a couple of weeks, and I am planning to make a little quilt - but not a patchwork one -just nice patterned flannel - I'm new to this!
I hope you will show us the finished quilt!

Okay, I have to ask-- should one NOT press the seams when quilting? What's the trick? I have never made a quilt-- my sewing tends to be reproductions of historic clothing-- but I have been really very tempted to start a quilt of my own.

cruststation: thanks! i'm not quite done yet, i still have to attach the border, quilt it and bind it. hopefully this weekend...
ellen: thanks! i had a feeling there might be 2 little somethings.
liz: miss you too, dude!
singne: photos to follow for sure. you should post photos of your quilt.
abby: thanks! i love me some red and pink. more to follow...
maggi: you do need to press the seams when quilting, just not open like when making apparel. the seams are supposed to be pressed to one side. i just forgot. i think the trick to quilting is a rotary cutter, a cutting mat, a template and strip piecing.
véronique: so glad it arrived, all in one piece hopefully! your's arrived today when i was at work. i can't wait for tomorrow!
