Talking Quilts

I wanted to let you all know that The Quilters Guild of the British Isles Talking Quilts Project is now live on-line.

I was involved both as an Interviewer and an Interviewee  (is that a real word?)

Here are a few pictures of my YK2 Quilt which I was interviewed about.







The link below will take you to the  Wales page which is where all the interviews I took part in are.
You can either read or listen to the interviews and look at pictures of the quilts.


ENJOY!

Finishing Off - Binding your Quilt

As our Sampler Quilt Blocks have all been made and we start stitching them together, our thoughts turn to finishing our Quilts. And that involves squaring off, making the binding and attaching the binding.

Below are the first three finished Quilts.

Then scroll down to the bottom of the page to see my three videos.
 1. Squaring a Quilt.
 2. Making Quilt Binding.
 3. Attaching binding to your Quilt.

                               Heulwen' s Sampler Quilt
Mary's Sampler Quilt

Yvonne' s Sampler Quilt


This first video shows how to square up your quilt.

This second video shows how to make quilt binding




And this third one shows how to attach the binding to your quilt




Have fun.
