Sewn With Love: Lorene Hendrickson's Crazy Compass Quilt



291-swl-crazy-compass-quilt-by-lorene-hendricksonFor this project all piecing and quilting were done in the embroidery hoop.

When Lorene Hendrickson of Leavenworth, IN bought her new Memory Craft 11000 Special Edition, she thought a quilt project with embroidery would be a great way to see what the machine could do.

So at her dealership she signed up for the EmbroidaBlock of the Month Program from Hoop Sisters. Each month for 10 months Lorene received the embroidery designs to complete their "Crazy Compass" quilt design. All piecing and quilting was done in the embroidery hoop. 

291-swl-crazy-compass-quilt-by-lorene-hendrickson-detailLorene says, "Thinking that was a good way to try out the new machine, I signed up for it."

But not everything went according to plan.  

She adds, "As many of you know, when you get to a certain point, you have to put the backing on the block for the machine to finish. Well, I forgot to do that on one of my blocks. I would have done it over, but I knew I was going to run short on some of my fabric. When I put the blocks together, I added my label."

To make the quilt full size, she added the borders.

And despite her boo boo, she says she's proud of her quilt. We think it looks perfect.
