Sewing blog 1

I’ve always wanted to make a patchwork quilt for our bed, and now I’ve got the material squares and bought myself a cheap new sewing machine. I’d have loved to have been able to spend more but this seems to fit right now. 

I’ve begun by pinning and adding a running stitch to each square. I’ve used the coloured squares I don’t need to make a small cover for the machine. This is a good way to practice before going on to the proper quilt.
