I've been holding out on you, Part the First.
I've made a bed quilt top behind your back. I did most of it during the Bank Holiday weekend last week, and I did the border today.
This link is not a tutorial on how to make a quilt top.
It's not "How to make a quilt top" it's "How I made a quilt top".
I come with great big L plates on at the moment, although I really enjoyed it and I am pleased with the results so far.
You can find out how I got from pencil and paper to full top by looking at my KEDkrafty's Patchwork Quilt Top Step by Step on Flickr.
If you know nothing about quilts, the top is the big sheety bit at the top. I haven't touched the layering and binding, and oh yeah, the actual quilting bit yet.
It's quite detailed, if you get bored just look at the pictures.
I would love it if you would leave a comment, either on Flickr or on here.
Do you happen to know the name of that diagonal layout I've done? If so, I'd be much obliged if you'd let me know, I'm having a hard time finding out.
Thank you my friends, and Happy Crafting! K x
