Camera Tripod Stabilizer

 


In this video I will be making a mini quilting project. You will see how to sew together a Scrap quilt block. This is an easy quilt block for beginners. 




The quilt block is called a disappearing nine patch.

We will first start out with making a scrappy 9 patch block then strategically cut it to make a different design. 





I love Mini quilt projects, and quilting although I don’t have a lot of time so I prefer mini quilting instead! I love Small quilting projects because I’m able to finish the project while still keeping up with my other obligations in life. 

Even if you are a beginner you can still tackle these  small quilting projects! 


 




The sewing project for  today is a stabilizer for my tripod but you can sew up anything with this disappearing nine patch method. For example you could make hot pads, bag, quilt, etc.




You will also see how  I straight line quilt.
