Prairie Women's Sewing Circle Quilt




This is a little quilt I made for my Prairie Women's Sewing Circle......love this Sawtooth Star!  Went together very well and I just love the Indigo and Cheddar print!  Now, tho, I want to make Another One using the same Indigo again but with a Cheddar background!  Unfortunately, my mind works much faster than my hands!!!   I machine-quilted this one in my usual manner of Stitching in the Ditch around the blocks which is enough to hold it so I can bind it for display.  Decided it needed more quilting just because I like the feel of more quilting!  With the light shirting background, I did not want to draw pencil lines, so I used my Hera marker, which is a plastic tool for marking a crease.  Following the crease lines was easy but it still took me about 3 hours to quilt the whole quilt..........I am not a very fast machine-quilter!!

  1. It's very beautiful. I love the colors. I did this one earlier this summer with the blue and the tone/tone white.

  7. Very nice little quilt. Love those sawtooth stars! Looking forward to seeing the other version that is in planning.
    I really need to spend the next few projects on smaller little quilts, these large ones are taking up so much time!

  11. You may think you are a slow machine quilter, but it is a matter of relativity. Cute quilt and I also like the fabric you've used.
