Belated New year wishes to all. Let this new year brings happiness in everyone's lives.
I was a bit lazy to write a post though I had some completed projects in hand to show off. Don't know why. Only today I came out of that laziness and decided to use my time properly. Last year, when I came across some blogs I have seen beautiful quilts and the blocks that make up the quilts. You tube has been a great video source and I was fascinated by some of the tutorials of making the quilt blocks. Easy to make and can complete a project within a short period of time.
Moreover, I had worn out night dresses in my wardrobe. I have taken those dresses, cut the part which is in the good condition, neatly ironed in a plan of making doormats with those pieces of fabrics. But after seeing the videos of quilting I got interested to make one and tried some blocks. One is a pinwheel block. I have shown it here:
I was really happy on seeing the completed block. Made two more blocks and attached it to make a runner. Then used a batting and the backing fabric.
For the edges I have used a black ribbon and binded it with mitered corners. Since I didn't have any idea of quilting i have straight stitched along the joining of each piece of fabrics.
I am happy that I have recycled my old clothes. I will be showing the blocks which I have done one by one in the coming posts.
