Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine »
Type of item: Functional
Animal Spirit's fabric by Robert Kaufman and various other prints.
What was your inspiration?
The Robert Kaufman fabric was my inspiration for the project in general. Ann Peterson's classes "Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine" and "Beyond Basic Machine Quilting" gave me the confidence to add the FMQ vines around the animals and the class "Creative Quilt Backs" gave me the idea to add the extra elements to the back.
What are you most proud of?
This is the first quilt I have ever made using my own design and not following a pattern. It's also the biggest project I've done to date and the first time I added a true free motion quilting element. So, a lot of firsts in this one project.
