Free Motion Quilting a Sampler »
Type of item: Functional
cotton fabrics ( Terrain by Kate Spain), Isacord & Bottomline threads
What was your inspiration?
Craftsy 2012 BOM, Leah Day's class, Cindy Needham's class, Kimmy's filler & star, & the woven border from the Paper Piecing class
What are you most proud of?
The quilt is all nice & crinkly from being washed & dried
I love the woven border & will use it again
I tried all kinds of FMQ motifs - the Hex stripe block was an experiment in scale - I used Leah's feather filler (thanks to Cindy Needham), small at the top & getting bigger as I went
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Do take your time
I discovered that I am not very fond of high contrast quilting thread colors, but I do like slight contrast in the quilting thread color - but I did like the variegated thread in the border
