QJ - 4 "H" Quilts Into One


QUILT JOURNAL - 4 "H" QUILTS INTO ONE

Machine Pieced
Machine Quilted
Baby Quilts - 4 @ 33" x 33"
Started - June 11, 2000
Completed - 2004

Pattern - "H" block -
Even More Quilts For Baby - Easy as ABC - Pg. 18-19 -
By Ursula Reikes (c) 1993

This quilt started out to be four separate quilts -

The tops were the same black print with a yellow "H" -

The backs were to be different colors -

The one for Grandson #1 was Red -
The one for Grandson #2 was Blue -
The one for Grandson #3 was Green -
And the one for Granddaughter #1 was Turquoise -

Somehow it got lost in the shuffle of Life - and by the time I got back to it - the kids were too big for baby quilts. Since I had already quilted some of them - I sewed them all together to make one big quilt on my new Husqvarna/Viking - Lily 555.

And since I never took a photo of the original quilt - and it has been “loved” to pieces - all I have to show for it is the scrap card -


And the Heart - ;))

BOB's Tuesday Toast - 8/19/14


Here’s to getting your Pressing Sequence down -

May it forever speed up the block assembly process - ;))

===

BOB doesn’t assemble her blocks for -

EASY STREET DETOUR -

My version of Easy Street - HERE -

The same way Bonnie does -

So she had to work out her own Pressing Sequence -

But once I did -

I was able to make the last SIX sets of corner units -

For my Block As -

Yesterday afternoon -

So now I have them all ready to go - ;))


And I MUCH prefer to assemble these blocks -

As GIANT 9-patches -

Instead of FIVE rows of FIVE blocks -



But then again - it’s probably just me - ;))
