Six Words and Sunday Shadows August 22-23, 2015

Creating a quilt is a process.....
 

Selection of fabric colors....
 
 
Sewing many strips together....

 
Arranging the squares into a pleasing design....
 
 
Finally it's all constructed....
( the outer material is the backing )
Close up below.

 
And off to the quilter it goes! Yay!
 
While I was at the quilters I picked up
the other quilt I made 3 weeks ago.
 
 
Now I just have to sew on the binding.
I love making these baby quilts!
 
 
Have a great weekend and be sure to visit

The little birdies one is beautiful! I can't even sew a straight line with a machine, Kathe.

Beautiful. I once tuned in to a TV program where a lady was making a quilt. It seemed awfully complicated. Easier to shoot a man into space.

Lots of nice lines, even the impermanent shadow ones.

Absolutely gorgeous, and like Jo I am especially appreciative as my sewing skills are non-existent.
