"Blue" from Bridget Oglesby

This is the second quilt top that I've pieced together. It's not quilted yet. I would like to machine quilt it myself after I learn how to do that.

Bridget,

You did a fantastic job on your second quilt top.  You selected colors that look very nice together and the piecing looks good, as well.  Have fun quilting it.

I like your quilt!  A book I found very helpful when I did my first quilting on my standard sewing machine was "One Line at a Time" by Charlotte Andersen (C&T Pub - also available at Amazon.com)  It takes you beyond stitch in the ditch, but it's more controlled than free motion.  It features a lot of geometric shapes including some curves using templates provided in the book and/or simple blue paint tape for guidelines.

Very pretty, Bridget. Blue is my favourite colour. I'd love to see a photo after you've quilted it.

Bridget, That is a beautiful quilt - my favorite color is blue and I have made a ton of blue quilts... i think that an overall meandering would look great on it and it is an easy pattern to do for a first or 2nd time machine quilting.  I think you did a great job for just your 2nd quilt... I think you are hooked and we are glad to have you in the quilting world.  You get one of my famous quilting songs... don't mind please that I sing a little off key... a quilting we will go - a quilting we will go - hi ho the dairy oh  - a quilting we will go!!! YIPPEEE!!!!

God bless, Thea
