Seeing Red

I started to learn to machine quilt last year after being inspired by my sister and mother, and fellow blogger FabGrandma. I learned to sew when I was a little girl and have continued to make things over the years but never a quilt. I've completed a few projects including this lap-size quilt that I finished today. I was supposed to do this one in a quilt class I signed up and paid for but something came up that needed my attention so I had to do it on my own.

I've called this one Seeing Red. I got the idea to do a red and white themed quilt and it took me a few trips to fabric stores to get enough fabric that I liked and thought would go together. This is a super fast pattern to cut and sew together and great for a beginner like me.

Quilting is another fun outlet for the creative side of me.

  1. I like this quilt, and the name. Did you also do the wavy stitch?

    FabGrandma makes some awesome quilt projects. Plus she's an inspiration in many ways.

    Although my Mom taught me to sew, I take no joy out of it.

  2. Just scrolled through your whole new blog and am loving it! Welcome back to blogland. We're on our way back to the Pacific Northwest (now visiting kids in Colorado and on short SW roadtrip).

  3. This would be a great way to show off fabrics that you love...
