Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)
My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is Joanna Vaughan!
Joanna Vaughan (JojoNH #566) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level of the Quilting Merit Badge!
“Learned how to sew the quilting squares together by hand. Using 2 1/2″ squares, I assembled the top to a table runner. The runner measures 31″ long by 15″ wide finished.
Learned an easy technique to add the batting and backing to the top. Learned which stitches would be best for the binding edge, and then decided on a tied top for finishing the quilting.
Since this was all done by hand, it took between 24-28 hours from start to finish.
I’m now obsessed!! I have always loved hand-sewing. Now, knowing how easy this was to do, I’m ready to tackle a larger project by hand as well. I could not be happier with the end result of my table runner!”
This is really beautiful! The colors go together so well. You should be so proud of yourself. Keep doing more projects because obviously you have a talent for this. You go girl!
Just lovely Joanna! All that hand work, amazing!
Joanna, that is lovely! I can’t believe that is only your first project…nice work! And I love that you are now hooked on quilting!
