Piecemakers Workshop

On Saturday, July 10, nine members of  Piecemakers Quilt Group met at Grace United Methodist Church for a workshop and pot luck lunch. This is an annual event where we all work on our own projects but use the same pattern. This year we decided to not start a new project, but to bring an unfinished object (UFO) to complete.  This event was so successful that we now plan to hold another workshop in the fall.

The project that I took to the workshop was the Fun and Done quilt that I started at the workshop last year. It is a quilt- as- you- go pattern. I had completed 48 blocks and had them joined into rows. On Saturday I top-stitched the sashing pieces that finish the quilt. When the workshop ended I had all the sashing finished and just had to top-stitch the binding which I did at home.

The finished quilt is approximately 45 X 60 inches.

What a beautiful quilt. I’d love to make one like that. I’ve never tried a quilt as you go project. Was it difficult?

Lynn, it was not difficult and it is all machine sewing. I will probably do it again. I bought the templates which make cutting and placing the batting faster and easier.
