quilting cottons, warm and soft quilt batting
What was your inspiration?
I'd seen a quilt hanging in my local fabric shop (queen size) and thought the idea would work for a baby quilt for my latest great nephew.
What are you most proud of?
I had to create a machine embroidery design to fill the negative space - it took several tries to get it to fit precisely and to have the required tie offs. However the quilt in the hoop worked very well and I was pleased with how the quilt turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Notice that I had to set up a mirror image of the embroidery because I had to alternate the orientation for adjacent squares where the diagonal piecing went along the opposite diagonal.
