    Scrappy 9-Patch Star Baby Quilt Is Finished! First Time Using Rulers.

    I finished sewing down the binding on this today. It's been a WIP for some time. I had made 7 blocks a few years ago, then made the other 5 this year. The early blocks were made using flying geese. The latest ones were made with HSTs. I took Amy Johnson's Craftsy classes on using rulers with a DSM or sit down LA. (I have a Baby Lock Tiara II, which means you have to hold the ruler on the quilt sandwich & move the quilt.) I've been practicing with rulers; this is the first quilt I used them for the FMQ. It was slow going. I used a regular ruler & a Frixion pen to make small reference marks. I alternated the direction of the quilting to add interest to the over all pattern. The 6.5" center 9-patches were quilted using Angela Walters' star burst pattern; spacing is 1". There are other pics in my new album. Thanks for looking.Finished Scrappy 9-Patch Star - April, 2017 001.jpgFinished Scrappy 9-Patch Star - April, 2017 002.jpgFinished Scrappy 9-Patch Star - April, 2017 006.jpg

          The piecing is beautiful! I have the yellow background gingham teddy bears on my daughters iSpy!
          The quilting is fantastic. I don't know when I'll get the adventurous, but I can look up to others like for for now!

                That's a beautiful baby quilt. I always love baby quilts made with 30s prints. Your quilting looks extra nice. Great job, Joy!

                    This is so cute. Your FMQ keeps getting better n better. You b should be very proud. I'm trying to work on precise cutting and piecing lately.

                        You did a fabulous job on this quilt. Don't you feel accomplished, finishing up a UFO or WIP?!! ~smile~

                            Yes, it felt good to get this one done--especially all the ruler work. I have soooo many other UFO's & WIP that also need to be completed. I have some Kaffe Fassett blocks waiting to be sewn together. Those are the Square-in-a-Square pattern. One of Eleanor Burns' "How Charming" waiting for a border, then to be quilted. I'll keep working at it. I usually have only ~1 hr. a day to work on my projects. Some days no time at all. Now that spring is here, there will be flower bed weeding to do, too. Ugh.
