I made a mistake

This book, A Passion for Patchwork has some seriously cute patterns in it. I can’t remember for sure but I think I picked it up at B&N or Borders on a clearance table (maybe a couple years ago) and it was the inspiration for my current doll quilt.

Unfortunately, I think I would have done better to have quilted this on my sewing machine because hand quilting this grid isn’t going to give the same definition that machine quilting it would. I should have realized that before starting but I was eager for another hand quilting project and just rushed into it.

  1. Sheesh, I could send you some handquilting projects! LOLI’m sure it will look great when you are done. I prefer handquilting for its softness and timelessness; I just don’t like to DO it!

  2. Isn’t this book seriously fabulous? I happened upon it several months ago when I was looking to use my 40% Joann coupon, and I grabbed it without really looking at it too much…I saw the denim bag and put it in the cart. After I got home and really looked at the huge quantity of adorable projects I was SO glad that I bought this book!

  5. I love this book, but am yet to make anything out of it even though there is so much I’d love to make. And I love hand quilting too, makes up for the fact that I can’t machine quilt (yet).
