|I need to take in the side seams before I wear it again.|
Now that I had my Jewel quilt off the frame I was ready to start on the Pigeon quilt to get it ready for school. I like to hang quilts in my Library to show the kids and the teachers my "hobby".
I thought I'd look on the net to see if there was a pigeon quilt block and lo and behold there is a block called Pigeon Toes.
Quilterscache. My printer didn't print to the right scale so I went with it and trimmed it afterwards.
I recently used some coupons from Scholastic to purchase a light table in case I went back in the classroom, or to use with students in the Library, but also to use with my quilting. I use it to trace patterns and I used it this time to do my paper piecing for this project. Boy did it make it easier than looking up at the window each time.
|It is nice and thin and sits beside the sewing machine.|
|It helps see that the seams are pressed in opposite directions too!|
|One finished block 3 to go!?|
|Next, plan the rest of the quilt.|
