I took a quilting class last month and learned how to cut, piece, and press in order to get the most perfect points in my quilt blocks!
Here is the sampler I made - I took the scrappy route:
After I cut out all of my flying geese and the points for my stars for the above sampler, I was left with a stack of triangles, which I sewed into these...
which I sewed into this!
a fun zig zag mini quilt! (I did NOT square up the HST's - so points aren't quite as nice on this one) This mini just *may* be up to win as a door prize at the Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild's Meet & Greet this month - so stop by if you have the time!
I decided to big stitch hand quilt the pointy sampler, and am finding myself in need of a needlebook/sewing kit of sorts. Digging through some of my old stuff today, I found this cute piggy cd case that is just begging to be reincarnated into a sewing kit!
Do you think you can help me figure out how to make it that sort of thing? Here are what the insides look like.
The only thing I was thinking is that maybe I could sew some felt to the CD sleeves for pins and needles. And of course sew in some kind of loop to hold tiny scissors...and then I draw a blank. Any other ideas out there?
