Quilting Is On My Mind (free quilt block patterns)

As I was going through all my WIPs in my work room the other day I came across the blocks for the signature quilt that I want to make.  The signatures are all there, they just need to be embroidered.  So they are now in the pile of things beside my chair…along with the sock that I had to frog back about 10 rows because I got carried away in the television show and started decreasing at the the ankle instead of waiting for the toe…duhhhh   I was so stressed in the process of making these that the stitches are so tight that I probably will not be able to reinsert the needles!

Anyway…on to the quilts… The Online Quilt Block Pattern Library   has over 500 quilt block patterns…free … online..

Have a look…

    Have a question: Does the tension in your hands transfer to the yarn when knitting??How do you check tension when doing your hand crafting because there is not a little gauge like there is on the sewing machine, or is there?

    Yes, the tension in your hands transfers to the yarn … the way to tell the tension is the ease with which the needles enter and exit the stitches you are working with… I know that is clear as mud… :o( It it is hard to insert your needle into the next stitch, your tension is probably too tight…
