Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine »
InstructionsI used the split batting method to quilt this project.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Mod, Casual, Funky, Rock / Punk
Cotton fabric, thread and batting.
What was your inspiration?
Our daughter picked the fabrics out year ago while working at a fabric store. She is an art teacher and picking out fabrics is her favorite part of quilting. At the time, I didn't know she was so interested in quilting and I hadn't quite gotten the bug yet. Her daughter just loves to dance and at the age of 3, wants to be a ballerina. When Jaybird quilts came out with the Ballerina pattern, I remember this group of fabrics our daughter had given me a decided it was perfect for Brianna's big girl quilt.
What are you most proud of?
This is only the second quilt that I have been happy with my free motion quilting. I ventured to try feathers and even though they aren't perfect, they are for this quilt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
These blocks are quite large. If you want a smaller block, figure out the differences in the pieces before you begin.
