Photos of my craft room

| No Comments

These photos were taken on August 3 after a few weekends of quilt block piecing.

From the doorway:

6 pieced quilt blocks


The first block I made is 10 inches, the rest are 12 inches. I've settled on making enough 12-inch blocks to sew together and then use to make curtains for the craft room! Unless I decide to start making blocks in varying sizes (instead of sticking with only 12-inch blocks), the 10-inch Cross and Crown block won't be used for the curtain project.

10″ Cross and Crown (top: start Jul. 12; finish Jul. 13)


12″ Basket (top: start/finish Jul. 19)


12″ Card Trick (top: start Jul. 20; finish Jul. 27)


12″ Churn Dash (top: start/finish Jul. 27)


12″ Dove-in-the-Window (top: start Jul. 27; finish Aug. 2)


12″ Dublin Steps (top: start Aug. 2; finish Aug. 3)


I'm finding it challenging to keep a 1/4-inch seam. In fact, the 10-inch block actually varies from 9 1/2 to almost 10-inches - not quite square! But, it's the first one! I'm thinking about taking a quilting class to help me get over the learning hump and get more comfortable with cutting pieces and sewing and then the actual quilting and finishing of a quilt.

I've signed up to take 2 art quilt workshops taught by Laura Wasilowski of and the Chicago School of Fusing. Fusing is quilting without piecing - i.e., without sewing the pieces together. I'm very excited!
