If you haven’t been following my adventures in quilting, I am blogging the process of making a twin-size patchwork quilt. Today I am sharing Part 3, where I actually start sewing! (Read Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed them.) In this post I’ll talk about how I sew my squares together into a block.
This sweet miniature wicker rocking chair was mine. It was given to me by my Grandparents when a was a toddler and it sat in the corner of my childhood bedroom holding stuffed animals while I grew up. It now has a new home – mine! My daughter loves climbing in and out (and in and out), sitting in the chair to look at books, and stand on it and rock like a wild woman.
While it was still in relatively good condition, it was in need of a little love. A fresh coat of paint was in order. The wicker was cracked in a few parts as well so I decided that making a chair cushion would be the best way to prevent it from getting further damaged.
Shutterbug speaking here. I love using my padded camera strap because the extra padding helps prevent the strap from digging into my neck, particularly so on vacation days when I tend to wear the camera all afternoon.
