Hedgehog Quilt As You Go

Standard

Hedgehog Quilt As You Go.

Remember I did not applique stitch the shapes down, as I wanted to stitch them down after I made my quilt sandwich.

Start with making sure your shapes are heat pressed down properly.

Then make a quilt sandwich, making sure that you batting and your backing is slightly bigger than your block.

Baste your sandwich in any method you like.

The back

Then once you picked your design to quilt, draw it onto your block with an erasable pen. I decie

Applique stitch around each shape, either by hand or with your machine.

Look, a hedgehog shape on the back!

Straight line stitch the grass at the bottom.

Then free motion stitch swirly shapes for the wind around the hedgehog.

I added an additional squiggly line in the body of the hedgehog to make it look more spiky.

Happy sewing.

Quilt Qwazy Queens Day Two

Welcome to Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop Day 2, hosted by Marian at Seams to Be Sew. You’ll find the list of other participants at the end of my post who are also offering daily giveaways. Thank you, Marian, for hosting another brilliant hop.

Our theme this year is UFO’s (Unfinished Objects), you know! Those quilt tops you finished and not quilted yet. Or maybe you haven’t even made all the blocks yet for a complete quilt top.

After much debate with myself about how I am going to show my huge amount of UFO’s, I made the decision to show you ONLY 20 of them, and not all 87!

And to make it easier, I left them all in 1 photo and not 20.

In this photo I have the following UFO’s; Fantastic Beasts 1 & 2, I want to believe, Pink Kitty, Pinstripe Crossing, Star Trek quilt, My Favourite Things, Project of Doom, Signature top, Pinwheel table runner, T Shirt quilt, Ipad Quilt, Place mats, Candlewicking quilt, Fall panel, Camping quilt, Little pink house, Stacked Windows, and Paper Piecing Vintage.

These are the ones, that I had every intention of finishing off this year… what a laugh. This year, is turning out to be just as busy as last year.  But I will persevere.

Please go and visit the other ladies who is posting today, to see what they have been busy with.
