Welcome to #MakersWednesday, where we take a mid-week break to show off our creative projects behind the scenes at Patterned HQ:
This week, I’ve got another quilting project to show off! This one took quite a bit of time to cut, but now I’m in the stage that involves sewing the pieces into rows. I’m making a triangle patchwork quilt for my grandmother, whose 97th birthday is this month. Here’s hoping I can finish in time!
Here’s an in-progress shot:
I have a bright and colorful thrift-store sheet I plan to use for the backing on this quilt. When the top is pieced I’m going to just follow the lines of the triangles and do diagonal straight-line quilting stitches. I have a feeling it will be a bit time-consuming but also a really fun result. Plus, this quilt has to stand up to a lot of washing in a nursing home so I want to make sure it’s nice and sturdy.
