|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Casual, Traditional, Classic|
What materials did you use? Batik charm pack, batik fabric, fusible fleece, variegated thread, Steam-a-Seam2 Lite
What are you most proud of? Finishing! This is far from perfect but quite adequate as a knock around table topper and picnic quilt. The charm squares are joined almost perfectly (something I enjoy doing) and I like the not-really-random random spacing of the colors. I really messed up the quilting. Stitches are all over the place from very short to awfully long. I'm not that enthralled with the pattern and likely won't use it again. I did learn a lot. As I tell students who have taken my classes, learning what you do not like is as important as learning what you do like. I used a stencil (technique from Ann Petersen's Beyond Basic Machines Quilting course)) to do the looped outer border. Inner boarder was a simple freehand loop. To finish this really quickly I used a fused binding I learned from Robbi Joy Eklow. One UFO finished!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take lots of courses so that you learn various techniques. Each teacher does a technique somewhat differently and you need to find the one that fits you the best. When taking a class, do the teacher's technique first. Learn what you like or do not like then go ahead and experiment!
