It was nice to read all the positive comments and questions!
Thanks for the eMails, too!
I'll try to answer some questions.
The book where I got the quilting pattern is this one:
It is a very good one, I always look for some ideas.
She shows a lot of different patterns and possibilities and you can always enlarge or reduce to fit your block:
The paper for the pattern should be really thin, I was lucky to find this here, it is used in offices:
But you can also use this other kind of paper, it is easier to find, you just have to cut it to the size you need.
What is really important when you trace the pattern is that you use a hard lead pencil, I use 2H from Faber Castell. The "soft" ones will get through the paper and you will have it in the fabric, which is not good at all!
After quilting two sections I wanted to see how I should sew them together.
I trimmed the sections, but just to be sure I left a little bit more of fabric in one of them, because there is where you press under 1/4" so you can stitch to secure this folded edge to the backing.
Then, with right sides together, pull the backing fabric away from the batting and pin the five layers together:
Using a 1/4" seam allowance, sew the five pinned layers together.
To avoid bulk you may also trim the batting out of the seam allowance, I did it pretty close! You can not see it here because i did after I took the picture.
Pin and hand stitch, using the visible line as your guide and your anchor:
That is how it turned out:
And here is the back:
It seems to work!
I hope I was able to show you how I am getting foward with this method.
To me it is really "learning by doing", but I'm having fun!
Happy quilting everyone!
