What was your inspiration?
I saw the pattern for a doily (?) in the norwegian magazine "Quiltmagasinet", no. 6/2011. I was looking for a pattern to a tablerunner for Cristmas and thought I could change the pattern myself. This small sample quilt I made to see how the fabric would fit together.
What are you most proud of?
That I can use the sample as a nice wallhanging in my office. And the free motion quilting, which I still think is a bit difficult.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
A small sample quilt is a good choice if you don't have a lot of time or are a beginner in quilting and applique.
