Here is what I did today

A couple of months ago my neighbor and I attended a class on making a Turning Twenty quilt. It is not my favorite pattern so I put it away until today. Tomorrow I will quilt it by using a technique I learned in a Quilt as You Go class. The quilt is only sewn in rows in this photo. I will quilt each long row and then sew them together. It is hard to explain the technique, but I am sure that many, if not all, of you are familiar with it. I also plan on cutting and sewing some of the 35 pinwheels I need for my next project.

Hope you had a good day!

Pin It Now!

Hey Cynthia
I've never made a turning 20, but it was a very popular pattern and class at the shop were I taught. Great way to use up fat quarters.
You's looks great.

I have never made one either, it looks great. Would love to know how you quilt it as you go. It looks like a fabulous way to use up fat quarters.

I have some Meadowsweet by Sandi Henderson I've been saving for this pattern.

Can't wait to see this quilted.

Good luck with finishing this quilt! I have never made a quilt, period!

Thanks for coming over to my blog to celebrate my blogoversary with me! Good luck to you. :)

I've made a couple of Turning Twenty quilts and a couple of Turning 15 quilts and they go together quickly. I like the colors and prints you picked--so pretty! The QAYG method is interesting but I wonder if it really saves any time because you have to cover those raw edges...adding a step doesn't appeal to me but working with just a strip to quilt at a time does! It will be good to see you working on it--be sure to share your thoughts!
