Joyofquilting's Crochet Corner

These videos I made are for my Beginner Crocheters from the last few months beginners days.
And of course anyone else who may be interested.

This first one shows how to Crochet the U.K. Treble Stitch


The one below moves on to making a basic Granny Square



And for my fellow Lefties
Below is a video showing how to Crochet the Treble Stitch left handed



And finally the Basic Granny Squares for left handers.

Have fun.

All Finished - Well Almost

I've just finished my Lynne Edwards Sampler Quilt. I really like it.
We did use  a few non Lynne Edwards blocks. Just because I liked them.
I intend doing some hand quilting in the sashing. But that can wait a while.
Meanwhile here are some pictures.

I made twenty blocks.

This is the back of the quilt.
I used up all my scrap pieces to make the back.

Close ups of the quilting - back view.


Close up of some patterned stitching I used for quilting.

See the black blur/smudge at the bottom of the quilt?

That was my new kitten Sparky darting across the quilt!

So it looks like Daisy and I have a new apprentice to help us quilt.
