Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

The Quilt is a Race Track

When my nephew got up from his nap he had the quilt I made him for Christmas with him. We had to convince him to put it up for dinner. Afterwards, we let him get it out and he showed me how he used it as a race track for his cars. I think he likes it.

Stacked 4-Patch Race Cars

Another UFO finished in 2009. This is “Race Cars”. In 2008 I taught the 4-Patch Stacked Posies and this was my class sampler. Finished it measures 47 x 59.

I hope everyone is having a safe and Merry Christmas.

A Start & Finish in One Night

Ok, it’s not a quilt, but it is fabric out of my stash! A while back a friend gave me a pillowcase kit and as simple as pillow cases are to make (although I make them harder encasing all seams) I simply had not gotten around to making this up. So tonight after shopping for what seemed like hours (wait, it was hours — not that we bought a whole lot), this was all my brain could handle.

Before we left for shopping, I finished binding the 4-Patch Race Car quilt. I need to put the label on it and wash it, then I’ll get a picture posted.

What’s On My Design Wall? – 12/21

I am recycling an old photo. There’s nothing on my design wall this morning.

Today I hope to finish the quilting on the 4-Patch Race Car quilt. I had tension issues yesterday and ended up ripping out everything I put in. Once that’s done, I have a pillowcase to make, and maybe one of those bulletin boards with ribbon.

Nothing like last minute quilting.

Stash Report Week # 51

Finished the back to the music quilt and I made the back and cut the binding for the 4-patch Race Cars. I’m going to try and get it quilted today. Nothing fancy, diagonal stitching through the squares and cornerstones. I’m not sure what I’ll do in the border.
