Free Motion Quilting a Sampler »
InstructionsThis quilt is actually a combination of Craftsy classes. Piecing the quilt blocks was part of the 2012 Block of the Month, the sashing was from Quick Strip Paper Piecing, and Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting a Sampler guided my quilting.
Type of item: Functional

cottons, cotton batting, lots of thread
What was your inspiration?
Even though I'm not a beginning quilter, I've learned so much with this year -long quilt project. I made 24 blocks total based on the 2012 Block of the Month Craftsy course. These blocks were combined to make 2 quilts, of which this is the second one. I have already previously posted the first one. I greatly improved my free-motion quilting skills with Leah Day's "Free-Motion Quilting a Sampler" course. I find the Craftsy courses very inspirational.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my free-motion quilting on this quilt. I even tied and sunk all my thread ends - just like the professionals. :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Pick a Craftsy course that you are interested in and just work through it step by step. You'll be amazed at what you can create.
