Quilt Along #7
Connected Quilted Pieces
Enjoying quilting each week with Leah Day as she challenges us by sharing on Wednesdays
what she is doing this week in FMQ and then on Thursdays answering our questions!
It has been educational and fun :)
My quilting samples that I have connected for this weeks FMQ project is
a few more of the Teddy Bears.
(front of one quilt row)
For this project I had completed a dozen samples of the teddy bears, and have connected these quilted samples with strips of fabric into four rows of three bears each,
creating a very small quilt center.
(back of one quilt row)
I stitched 1" folded binding onto the front simultaneously with 1.5" folded binding on back (back binding was set 1/8" away from the edge, to give me enough binding to later cover the front stitching). I then folded the front binding over and stitched the edge down by machine. Then, I folded over the back binding and hand stitched it in place covering the machine stitching.
This FMQ project will later become a baby quilt for a grandchild
once I add on borders increasing its size and bind it.
