Quick-Strip Paper Piecing »
Type of item: Functional
Batik fabrics, cotton & polyester threads
What was your inspiration?
Peggy Martin's class in strip paper piecing and Ann Petersen's class Beyond Basic Machine Quilting - both women are great instructors! They taught me to not be so anal about fabric selection & free motion quilting.
What are you most proud of?
This is my first real scrap quilt. I used up some leftover batiks that had been in a box for a couple of years. (And, of course, had to buy a couple of fat quarters)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be aware of the edge of the quilt when quilting the borders! I lost part of a few of my feathers in the binding.
