This short blog is more about the tumble than the rough – tumbling blocks if truth be known.
A friend had rediscovered a block-printed sheet that she had bought many moons ago on a trip to India. She asked me to turn her sheet into a quilted bed spread. I was keen to learn how to stitch tumbling blocks and so, rather than make a plain backing for her quilt, I decided to do deviate. Below are photos that describe the creation of ‘Chrisie’s Quilt’.
It was while learning how to free motion on my sewing machine that I discovered how to ‘lower my feed dogs’. What a revelation!
