What was your inspiration?
Peggy Martin and how easy and fun she made the paper piecing class. When she showed us how to use some of our scraps from the different blocks we had made, I started realizing how much I enjoy colors and their interplay. I've also just started the Stupendous Stitching class and when Carol Waugh explained about doing a stitch bible, I realized I could really add some punch to some of the various pieces I've made. The recipients of my projects really like the added touch of the decorative stitching.
What are you most proud of?
How using some of the decorative stitches on my machine really make the pieces come alive. Realizing my creative ability as it has only been in the past year that I have started exploring that aspect of myself and I'm having tons of fun learning about quilting and creating.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun and play with the colors and the decorative stitches. Use some yellow or golden thread to help your quilting pop.
