Here's my red, white and blue mini quilt!
About a month ago I was rearranging my books in
my sewing room and came across one of many favorites
books I own, "Little Quilts All Through The House,"
by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Holt and
Sylvia Johnson. It's a cute book filled with
lots of photos and you can use your scraps too!
Flipping the pages, I came across this quilt.
Well, I just had to make it! Forth of July was
coming up and I've always wanted to have a
quilt for every holiday! I gathered up my
materials, fabric I already owned. Yeah!!!
Cut and sewed my strips together.
Instead of sewing individual blocks and hearts
on my mini quilt as directed on the pattern,
I decided to just cut the size of the finished
block with my star fabric. I sandwiched
the batting with the front and back fabric.
I then used a decorative wave stitch just on
the star area of the quilt.
I then used a straight stitched on the rows of
red and white strips. I used the width of
my walking foot to determine the
width between stitches.
Here's a look at the back of my mini quilt.
