What materials did you use? A stack of Fat Quarters that were chosen for an ironing board cover.

What are you most proud of? That this Failed Ironing board Cover metamorphosised into a beautiful Quilt, rather than a heap of fabric in the bin.Im also extremely pleased with the amount of quilting I managed........and spirals which I have hankered todo for a long while

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If its 'All ruined now' ...don't throw a hissy fit and throw it in the bin...walk away for a while and see if anything can be salvaged and just what it might become! As for the quilting, when you start going round and round, especially with your eyes fixated on the line of sewing, some wibbles and wobbles might seem like enormous boo-boos at the time. My advice is to 'discreetly' mark the 'problem area' and carry on finishing the quilting. You will be surprised how little , when you have filled your project with quilting, stands out as 'wrong'. There may be an irretrievably obvious problem somewhere that does draw the eye...I went too far into the centre of a spiral which resulted in a hard, raised nubble which screamed at me...but I simply went back and took out the amount of stitching that caused this (not so much in the end, just a couple of rounds) and was happy with the result.

And with practice you'll get better and better! Kudos to you for such a great rescue!!

I noticed .your pattern shows your sewn stripes to become a stair step pattern. I recently tried to sew stripes together and got the same effect. The only problem is the width of my quilt top became smaller and smaller. The stripes bowed. My husband suggested I follow how wooden floors are laid. Check the bow in the strip and reverse the direction of the next strip and voila the strip straightens itself out and the edges are always even. It's magic. What is the pattern you used?
