Quilting for knitters

July 12, 2010

My Monday morning knit group is branching out. Now we're quilting!

Remember I told you about all the stacks of 6" squares I've been cutting and saving for years? I put the squares in color groups and asked, "Who would like to learn to quilt?" Eight of us got together last week, laid out the squares in our favorite color way and had our first lesson; how to do a running stitch to piece the little squares together.

These will be crib size, with possibly the most exquisite fabrics ever seen in a baby quilt! Everyone is so excited! This is fun!

  1. Oh, I love it! So much fun! I just started quilting myself, and I'm in love with charm packs because, well, it's such and easy way to play with colors. I love the combinations your group chose.

  2. Gorgeous and so fun!!! Can't wait to see the finished product:).

  3. You have such beautiful friends.

  4. Kristen, I hadn't read your Blog for awhile and love the quilts that you are making and after seeing the one your making I couldn't believe the beautiful square material and colors. I'm glad my old Hope Chest as they called it in my day is still able to be put to good use. Your hand is improving and am thankful for that!!

  5. The quilts all look amazing! Are you able to do some quilting yet? I hope your hand is improving
    and you are getting back into the knitting groove.
