Race Car Mini Quilt

Machine Quilting, Lori KennedyGood Morning, Quilters!

Did anyone have time to try The Building Blocks tutorial from yesterday?

I used it to complete a small sample I had on hand.

This small quilt includes:

The Race Car

Grid Pop

The Jigsaw Puzzle


What motifs will YOU combine?

I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

Racing around,

  1. I am first doodling it! I need practice to get the ideas into my head. I like that you show us your completed work. It’s beautiful but shows that all things don’t have to be symmetrical or the same. I like that. Back to doodling!

  2. Yes Lori, I tried it I wrote my name in block letters, one letter per block , did some swirls starting from different corners and attempted the stars, they are in great need of improvement. I did a 6 X 7 grid of 1/12″ squares and have 10 empty squares which I might fill with other motif or motifs. I Framed the blocks with the loopy border as on the sea side tutorial of a week or so ago.
    Thanks it was good to do.

  3. I love this little quilt. When you break things down as you do it becomes so much easier to do. I must put your little car on a few of my quilts. Thank you again

  4. Hi Lori, this is not about stars however looking through some back tutorials I came across two about correcting tension. It seemed as though there were others but I don’t know how to find them. Do you have them together under a heading I would like to read more. Thank you

    • Hi Mary. I don’t think I ever finished the series on tension. Sometimes these topics get away from me. I will try to write more on tension this month.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
