Spanish Bond Raggedy Brick Lap Quilt
« on: Mar 24, 2016, 06:14:11 PM »
Don't the names of these quilts go on forever? 

These are the ones that you cut the front the back in rectangles and squares and then but the batting 2 inches smaller then quilt all the bits together and then sew them raw edges out with a 1 inch seam.  These seem to go quickly although with all the miss cuts I had at the beginning I was getting frustrated. 

I'm using all plaids and home spuns this time.  Trying for a masculine look. 

So far all 16 squares are cut out and sandwiched and 4 of them are quilted.  Then all 64 of the rectangular batting pieces are cut out and 18 of the 128 fabric pieces that I need to cut are done. 

Wish me luck.

It's moving right along.  I got a lot more cut and am ready to iron the next fabric for the next cut and I did probably another 4 of the squares as far as quilting.  I'm liking the results so far.

8 pieces cut for a total of 48 out of 128.  2 more squares quilted for a total of 9 out of 16.  Progress.  I really hoped I could move faster without sacrificing quality.  But sewing is not my forte and that remains true.  I'm glad my daughter can sew.

Is that hand sewing that gets you, Tammy? I sure have a problem with that part of any project.

believe t or not it's machine sewing that is the problem, or if I am really truthful it is everything about the sewing process that is not hand sewing lol.  I miss cut some more fabric.  Not as much as the other day but still...  I have 13 of the center squares done so that leaves 3 to do for a total of 16.  And I have 76 of the rectangles cut out of a total of 128.  52 still need to be cut before I can sandwich them and quilt them and then sew them together, bind the edge and then cut all the raw seams.  That's a lot to do.  I don't think I will be done in April.

All 128 pieces are cut.  All 16 centers are sandwiched and quilted.  2 of the first of 4 sets of 16 rectangles are done.  That's a mouthful.  I hit upon a plan that each "block" will be quilted with the same design on all 5 pieces.  So at least I'm not having to choose every time I pick up a piece.  So I'm happy with that.  I'm sorry that even when Clyde takes a picture of this the quilting won't show.

Well now I've got 6 of the first set of 16 done.  I've got to get more of these done per day or I'll be at it for 4 months.  Way to long.

they will be 12 inch blocks when sewn together.  So medium sized I guess.  The entire quilt will be 48 x 48.  A good sized lap quilt.

yes it is amazing how many pieces go into a patchwork.  Far more than I ever thought.  Today I did nine of the rectangles.  I'll have to do one over because I caught the backing and it folded under and got caught in the stitching.  I'll have to remember to pin the corners.

live and learn...I ripped out the stitching last night while watching tv and today I got it resewn.  and then I did one other brick so now I have  a total of ten done of the first 16.  Slow going I know.

I thought I had cut 16 of the first set, but I had only cut 12 and I'm out of those fabrics...fun.

God is good.  I found just enough fabric to make the other 4 bricks.  Explained why I had those 4 extra batting pieces.

need one and a half more rectangles done before the first set of 16 is done.  This is really slow.  I'd be done if I hadn't decided to do more intricate designs in the quilting.  But it's going to be worth it.  Or so I tell myself.

It is giving me an appreciation of the straight line patterns.  I seems I'm getting worse at them rather than better but maybe that's just this part of the curve?

I quilted all the pieces of block two and then put it together.  So that is two blocks done.  I'm loving it.  I hope it turns out like I expect.  Fingers crossed.
