I used muslim squares and music scrap material for inserts as a theme. Around the edge has a crocheted edging. a table runner for the holidays.my first try at this.
What was your inspiration?
I was inspired by the challenge and haven't done it before. the look it creates is beautiful.
What are you most proud of?
the fact that by observing it on tv ,I was able to write down the instructions. I'm pleasantly pleased with my first attempt,and I'm already planning on a larger version for my twin bed. I also love the fact you don't need a backing or batting or an edgeing. I put on an edgeing because it needed something for width.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I'm really new to quilting. never had time when I was working full time. start with smaller project like a table runner and colors or themes you might already have. Have the courage to try somthig new and surprise yourself.You'll get inspired to do more than you think.
