I got together with my friends yesterday, so my friend’s mom could teach us how to quilt. I think I have found a new hobby. Quilting is so much fun! We used a video tutorial off of YouTube that made it really quick and easy. Here are some pictures of what I have gotten done so far.
I laid my blocks out in this fantastic chevron pattern. I was so excited to see it all come together!
Then when I sewed my first two rows together this is what happened. The inner points of the chevron don’t meet up right. I have tried to figure out a way to fix this, but I don’t know how. If any of you more advanced quilters know a way to make it meet up right I would love to know what I was doing wrong.
Here are the same blocks before I sewed them together.
At the end of the day I laid out all of my blocks to see what I had. I will be making this quilt to use as a new bedspread for my daughter’s room. I think the thing I like most about quilting is laying out the blocks and seeing what patterns you can make with them. I am excited to see how this quilt turns out.
If you have ever wanted to learn to quilt, I highly recommend this method of tube quilting. Although the chevron pattern didn’t work for me in the end, the tutorial was great for teaching a beginning quilter the basics of the hobby.
